Glimpses of the Pittsburgh Ren Fest

Hello all! Sunday was a lovely day. Jimmy and I went to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival! Basically it is a big celebration of the 16th century. All of the workers dress up and some of the people who go dress up as well! Jousting, turkey legs, axe throwing, glass blowing and much more makes for a fun time. Here are some pictures I took…

  1. Looks like you guys had fun… I don’t think we have anything like that here, I’ve never been to one or really heard of them.

  2. I always used to want to go to a renaissance festival! That one looks like campy greatness. The closest I’ve been to one is the renaissance festival we had in my middle school 🙂

  3. Yes, I’ve been to Renaissance Festival once when I was back in college. I remember it was unique and your pictures reminded me some of the things I saw…but mostly forgot! I think it’s more fun knowing the background etc. Sounds like you two had great time tho! 🙂

  4. Thanks for the pictures, it looks like a lot of fun! I have never been to such an event, but I always enjoy reading about it, it seems like my kind of thing 🙂

  5. We have a ren. festival every year here in MN, but I’ve actually never gone! It sounds like you had a really fun day with your man! And YES for iced coffee! I still plan on drinking these through the winter…haha. How is school going?!
