  • Susan

    I went to the faire last weekend. This event is well worth the money and drive. It almost like being transported back in time. There are all kinds of people in costume, horse joosting, sword fights, vendors, food and different stages with shows. I saw scots, gypsies, pirates, street performers, musicians, fire jugglers, and just about anything else you could imagine going in the castle during the reinassance.

    It's 14 miles longer to go 301..but Blanding has alot of lights and traffic. .my sister lives in Alachua and I visit often. .so the 14 miles makes up for the time of the lights

    January 23, 2014

    • Ki

      Sorry Sue, I should have specify that 23 miles out of MY way not from McDonald's because I live in Orange Park half way down the Blanding Blvd. Thank you for organizing and see you at the Faire ground parking lot.

      1 · January 23, 2014

  • Ki

    Anyone who lives in Orange Park would like to carpool, let me know. If we take Hwy21/Blanding, we can save 23 miles one way.

    January 22, 2014

  • Michelle

    Is anyone driving? I can help out with the gas $$

    January 21, 2014
