Ren Fest of the North Land

Over the Labor Day weekend, the lovely Lady D and I took our faithful hounds and journeyed to the Minnesota Renaissance Faire.  Located in Shakopee,Mn (SW of Minneapolis). This Faire is very large with sixteen stages of entertainment, over 100 vendors, plenty of beer/ale/wine, and loads of food (our favorite was the popovers--excellent). Our best vendor was Amber Moon which had very fine hand carved jewelry. We had a great time, good weather, and a festive crowd, what more could you ask.  Although, I was surprised that more people weren't in Viking costume, this was the land of the cold tundra of winter and inhabited by people of Norse descent, but perhaps it's only my thought. If you do attend, make sure  not to miss the jousts, the Piccolo Pony (a huge rocking horse), and for the fun of it,take a stroll down the Hobbit Hole. So, drink, be festive and enjoy this one.
