This is one of those random blog posts that I sometimes write about random things that I’m a fan of.
This time of year is one of my favorites – Ren Fair season in Kansas City! My daughter and I absolutely love the renaissance fair. We go almost every weekend during the month and a half it’s open in our area.
We even get all dressed up. One of our favorite parts is looking for handmade items to add to our costumes from the vendors at the fair. We rarely leave without at least one new treasure.
You may be thinking, “What’s the point of even going?” Honestly, it’s just fun. I don’t care if it has any other point than that. We love any reason to wear a costume. We also love seeing what costumes other people create.
Perhaps the biggest reason we love it though is that we get to “nerd out” (as my daughter is fond of saying) in an environment where most people are doing the same thing and that lends it a very safe feeling. Sometimes it’s nice to just be around people who enjoy the same type of novelty fun as you.
If you haven’t ever been, you should give it a try. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but try it at least once before you decide that. My first time at one was only 4 years ago, and I have gone every year since. We’ve even been to ones in other states.
Anyway, happy reading, writing, and ren fairing this month!
