Love the blast to the past, but will definitely wait until the weather is a wee bit more welcoming...
For those of you who have NEVER considered it... do rethink that option. From giant chessmatches to eccentic artisans to musical numbers to witty banter... etc etc etc! Great afternoon by yourself (have done this SOLO a ;)few times over the years when BF was too cool for the Faire, or posted overseas or...?, with friends, with meetups, with dates ...
Regular price is 18 dollars these days, per person, per day. Fair lasts till March 28--- See dates for exact opportunities to regress! With the link below, you pay 8 per person and 4 per children. REALLY.
AND you can go anytime, not just with me. Up in Tampa, near USF.
I just bought my ticket actually.
FINE PRINT-- YOU HAVE TO BUY TODAY BECAUSE THIS IS TODAY'S DEAL... AND there may be a limit on the number of tickets offered to sell! http://www.groupon.com/r/uu344833
"Located near I-75 at 11315 N. 46th St., the annual fair (now in its 32nd year) features 20 entertainment stages, plenty of food options, and a host of vendors in the merchant marketplace. Shop for old-fashioned wares including leather, metal, and musical instruments, or gorge on traditional turkey drumsticks, ye olde foot-long corn dogs, and roasted corn. This year's festival marks the introduction of the Medieval Monster Museum , where guests will come face to face with fairies, trolls, and vampires while marveling at archaic creature-fighting weaponry. Prolong merriment for an additional fee at the Pirates' Feast, offering a three-course meal and live entertainment, or head to the Royal Smoker for an early-evening, adults-only soirees with snacks, cigars, sips, belly dancing, limericks, comedy, and sounds.
Renaissance festivals are one of the few places on the planet where fantasy comes to life. Old souls trapped in the wrong era, aspiring young-adult fiction novelists, and masters of disguise will delight in the all-day opportunity to play pretend. The fair offers free parking. "
So... if you like fairs, get your ticket. I will post the date i will attend and host later... as will many other meetups, but, I thought you might like the savings... and the opportunity to decide when and if!
Have a great week one and all!
