So we've lived here for 18 years and never bothered to go to the Renaissance Fair in the woods of Colorado. We were NOT disappointed, it's been going on for 32 years here on the weekends in the summer. About 1/3 of the people were dressed up in costume. There were camel and African elephant rides. There were costumes to buy and jousting and tons of cool things to eat like "spinach pie" and "steak on a stake" Most the acts were on the bawdy side, but these fire breathing acrobats were pretty great and this fairie gave me a magic rock.
