Bristol Renaissance Faire

It's Summer! Which means the Bristol Renaissance Faire is just around the corner. The Bristol Renaissance Faire runs Saturdays, Sundays & Labor Day from Jul. 6 thru Sep. 2, 2013. It's a popular attraction for many Meetup members, so I would like to know if folks would like to set specific weekend(s) or day(s) aside for a Ren Faire Meetup event. Adult tickets run $19.95 per day, but with the early bird sale right now or email coupons tickets are $14.95. Walgreens and other sites also offer discounted tickets. The special events calendar is listed below. Please reply to this thread indicating which weekend(s) in order of preference you would like to attend, or if you already bought your tickets tell us when you're going! Also include whether you will be attending Saturday, Sunday, or both. The Steampunk themed weekend is always a popular choice, but keep in mind Saturday, July 20th is the same day as the Summer BBQ / board game event at Jason's place. Please let me know! Thanks!

August 17th and 24th are the best days for me. No dance class those weekends.

Totally in!
Up for anything but I like the idea of doing the fantasy costume weekend. Or any of the other sweet costumes.

I'd be interested in the historical costuming myself.

The 'dress like a monster' on the 24th sounds awesome. I call dibs on Bowie as the goblin king ;)

Well, I'm way to self-conscious to dress as anything, but I'll put a vote in for August 24th as well. It's really the perfect thing to follow up Gen Con with. :)

I see several votes for August 24th so that's good enough for me! Event posting in 3....2...1...
