It's Time for the Ohio Renaissance Festival!!

Forget your cares and step back in time to this 30-acre re-created 16th Century English village and enjoy over 400 years of fun in a single day! The festival offers something for everyone featuring nearly 100 shows daily on 12 stages, over 150 unique arts and crafts shops, hearty food and drink, games of skill and human-powered rides to amuse all ages.

Over 150 costumed characters welcome you to the village! Rub elbows with Royalty as you cheer your favorite knight to victory in the thrilling Full-armored Tournament Joust. Welcoming you to a festive day in the village are dueling swordsmen, rowdy pirates, nobles, peasants, and daring jugglers. The sprawling landscape is dotted with hundreds of unique shops in the Medieval Marketplace featuring many one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted items. See time-honored crafts of glassblowing, stone carving, blacksmithing, leather tooling, boot making, and more demonstrated. The air is filled with the scents and smells of the foods of the Renaissance period. Feast like Royalty on juicy, giant roasted turkey legs, fresh baked bread bowls overflowing with soups and stews, fish 'n chips, steak-on-a-stake, succulent roasted corn on the cob and a wide variety of the finest ales and wines. There's something for everyone's taste buds! 

Visitors of all ages will be amused by the games of skill and human-powered rides. Try your hand at archery and see if you're a modern-day Robin Hood, or climb the castle tower and rescue the lovely damsel in distress.

Funko POP Heroes: Arkham Asylum Joker

I expected this figure to be the same quality I am used to with Funko products, and I was not disappointed at all.

 This full sized figure does a great job of expressing the crazy that is Joker. I love the small details that matter, like the chain on the waist or the stitching on the pants. It is perfect for collectors and little Batman fans too. My nephew is 6 and he loves playing with Funkos as action figures.

This Joker figure does not stand up on it's own, so if you want a figure that will stand alone, do not buy this one! It will not do it, no matter how hard I tried. I normally leave them in the box when displaying, so that was not a problem for me.

This Funko was for my son and he just propped it against other items on his dresser, which worked fine for him. To me, the look of this, and the fact that he is Joker, are enough to justify the price. I am satisfied and my son loved it as a gift, so it was a win/win for me.

Fiesta Colorful Paper Fans

These fun little fan style decorations are so simple, anyone can assemble them. They literally just unfold and hook at the ends with a paper clip. Then you use the attached string to hang them. 

When the party is over, you just remove the clip and fold them back down to save for the next time. It's that quick and easy. The fans looks great hanging from the ceiling, light fixtures and doorways. 

You can even hang these from a porch, canopy or tree branches for outdoor use. The fans are made from a thick paper that is sturdy enough to use multiple times. I love that the color variety allows these to work for endless occasions too, so you don't need a new package for every event. My only complaint with these is that I wish there were more in the set!
