Renaissance Faire Anyone?

Would anyone be interested in going to the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Irwindale?

Here's a description:

"Where all the Faire's a Stage, and Fantasy Rules the Land...!"
Explore and take in the sites and sounds of our exotic port town. Boldly join in the play or quietly stroll the merry lanes of the Faire. Your visit is sure to be an experience that you'll treasure forever.
Cheer on a band of battling knights!
Meet our new Lady Mayor and help her choose a husband.
Haggle with an English fishwife!
Flirt with a lovely wench or dashing young rogue!
Join Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth I on a grand visit to an amazing 16th century Faire!
The fun and celebration has just begun!
Swashbuckling Heroes, merry Minstrels, dazzling Daredevils, Dancers, Jugglers, and hundreds of Colorful Characters fill our twelve stages and bustling streets bringing you non-stop entertainment throughout the day.

It runs from April 10 - May 23, 2010
Saturdays & Sundays 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM

If we buy the tickets in advance I think we get a discount. Otherwise they are $25 at the door. It's a lot of fun (I've gone the last two years in a row with my co-workers). There's no need to dress up (although lots of people do).

Here's a website for more information:­

sounds interesting. I'll need a guide throughout though as I missed my 8th grade history field trip to the place and am a foreigner to these distant lands of Irwindale.

I went all the time a couple of years ago. Lots of wenches with their wares hanging out, knights, jesters and peasants. It's like you've been dropped in a renaissance village for a day. A lot of people come dressed up. Although sometimes they are not dressed in renaissance gear. It's a lot of fun and the people watching is great. I'm in!

Cool, people answered! How do I make this an idea? Do I have to make it an idea for it to be under consideration to become an event?

Nevermind, now I see the idea tab *hits head*.

If it doesn't become an official event I'm going to the RenFair on May 1st, it's a Swashbuckling Day!
