Going back... Back into time.
For the past 53 years, the Renaissance Pleasure Faire has taken place in Southern California. It has grown into an annual interactive playground and gallery for over 200,000 participants. Guest are not required to dress up, but I highly recommend it.
A group of friends invited me to my first faire last year, and I was hooked! Disconnecting from the real world and immersing myself in the culture of those who lived during the time between the middle and modern age was a humbling and exciting experience. Unfortunately, due to common story of, "As we get older, it's harder to get everyone together," my costume clad group dwindled down to a fraction of last year's. However, we reaped the benefits of not having to wait for anyone, and we got to do everything that we wanted at the perfect pace!
So... Who wants to come next year?
