SHAKOPEE-Minn., (Aug. 2, 2010) - With the cost of gas, food and living increasing everyday, people are no longer taking the time to ?live?. Saving money is the priority of most families and individuals as the busy summer season comes to an end.

What most people don?t realize is the easiness of FREE at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. The Festival, now in its 40th year, has some of the most reasonable prices for admission, food, souvenirs, and additional activities in the state.

?Competition is the key,? Jim Peterson said, owner of Mid-America Festivals, producers of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and others throughout the nation.

?We understand that with a family of four an adventure like the Renaissance can become expensive, we do our best to be sure that the value is there,? Peterson said.
