Season's End

Well, in the midst of this massive storm, the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire ended it's season. I am so glad they were able to properly end the season despite the storm, unlike last year where they had to close down entirely.  A friend of mine attended yesterday, the very last day and said they had a condensed schedule, but that enabled them have the final joust and finale in song. Very considerate of the faire!
I attended Saturday, with some friends who had never been. They were very excited to be there!

They decided they wanted to follow the story line, so we met up with some other friends of ours at Queen's Court, where she introduced the rivalry of  William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlow. 
Then we took in the shops before making our way to the next story line show, Human Chess.

Then we browsed some more of the lovely shops!

We also watched the Royal Falconer and his birds,  a wonderful show for any bird lover, or anyone for that matter. The falconer has a rare blend of knowledge and humor engaged an audience of any size.
We spent a great deal of time just taking in the sights an sounds of the faire without actually sitting down at a lot of shows other than the story line shows. I recommend this method to newcomers, just to a basic feel of what all the faire has to offer, though there are incredible performers at the faire!
