After that, we packed up our stuff and moved to our campsite in Sterling, NY to spend the next two days enjoying the Sterling Renaissance Festival.
If you've never been to a Renaissance Festival, I suggest you find the closest one and get there asap!
They're an interesting experience and give you a taste of what life was like in England in the 1500's with a humorous twist.
Half the fun of going to a Renaissance Festival is people watching. The actors, of course are dressed in amazing costumes...
...as are many of the patrons. I'm amazed, actually, at how much money and effort some people put into their costumes.
Alas, my family does not dress up. As much fun as it would be, when camping for a long weekend, there's just too much to coordinate, especially with three kids.
I think my middle son would love to dress up. Heck, around here, he's often dressed as Darth Vader, Yoda or a knight. He'll wear costumes wherever he goes. He once spent a summer dressed as Spiderman. But, my other two wouldn't be as into it. They wouldn't even stand behind the wooden pictures of a king and queen to get their pictures taken!
I did, though.
What do you think? Should I wear it to the ball?
I hope your summer is shaping up to be as fun as ours! Huzzah!
