Pirates, Rogues and Princesses

The California Renaissance Festival takes place 5 weekends each year.  Two weekends ago, I went on a “busman’s holiday” and took my family to the Northern Renaissance Faire at Casa de Fruta.

It’s a wonderful faire and I try to go one weekend each season and have been invited to be an visiting exhibitor at next years event. I was happy to be able to visit with friends and other craftspeople at leisure when not needing to attend to the business of being behind my own booth!

Gina and Jason were attending the fair in their full pirate regalia!  By the looks of it, Jason has been very successful in his plundering!  Both he and Gina are wearing quite a few pieces of Marty Magic jewelry.

There are great shows, games and rides for the kids.  I am still wondering what possessed me to allow my 3 year old grand son to be launched skyward on this contraption?
