Guarding the gates of the Texas Renaissance Festival are the Beefeaters. Stalwart defenders of the gates of New Market village, they are a small detachment of the finest of the Yeomen of the King’s Own Guard sent to New Market to secure the village for the King’s annual progress, and ensure only invited guests are admitted to the festivities. Flamboyant and raucous, their importance can not be overstressed, as they are the first of the King’s subjects that greet the guests on their way into the festival, and the last that they see as they start their journey home.

Enter our realm, and enjoy thy stay!

By The Numbers: 2016 Week Four

This week’s update will be short and sweet, as it was a short (but not so sweet) week for me, with the annual School Days held this week.
