I just wanted to let you know of two fun events coming up. This will be our first time going to these, but I've heard they are wonderful.
The Anatolian Festival is next week and free for homeschoolers on Thursday and Friday at the OC Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. Just go to this link and sign up:
Visitors enter the festival area through the “Civilizations Path”, which consists of 14 gates each representing different civilizations like The Hittite Empire, The Kingdom of Commagene, Lydia, The Persian Empire, The Urartu State (Armenians), The Phrygia, The Ionian Civilization,The Assyria, Troy, The Roman Empire,The Byzantine Empire, The Great Seljuq Empire, The Ottoman Empire, and Turkish Republic. Anatolia has been a cradle for all these and many other civilizations throughout the history. At each gate, actors wearing authentic costumes of each civilization welcome and greet all visitors.
Then staying with our history theme, the Koroneburg Old World Festival starts this weekend and runs Saturdays and Sundays till June 16th in Corona. I've heard that this is a smaller, family friendly renaissance fair and they have a reading program that offers free admission for child & parent. http://www.renaissanceinfo.com/fabledreader/index.html For info on the fair: http://renfestcorona.com/
Summer fun is just beginning!
