I try to take my kids to do as many different things as I can, so this weekend, we went to the Ohio Renaissance Festival. I have been wanting to visit there anyway, and I thought it might be something the kids would like. I was so right.
You will see people in costumes everywhere, and if you don't have one, you can surely buy one there. There are tons of shops offering everything from simple gear to leather and Chainmail, boots and even weaponry of all styles and colors.
You can watch plays, jousting, acrobats and more, including a group that appeared on America's Got Talent, all included in the admission cost, and happening multiple times through the day.
While there, you can also challenge your skill at things like archery or knife throwing, test your strength or let the kids go on the old style theme rides.
If hunger strikes, stop by one of the food locations for selections like Turkey Legs, Fowl Tidbits and Royal Wurst or have a cold glass of wine, ale and much more. There are traditional choices like Bread Bowls and Pizza too, so even the kids can find something that suits them.
If you have a free day, or even a few hours, I suggest spending it at the Ohio Renaissance Festival!!
