What’s With All the Wings?

It was a nice warm weekend in the kingdom for our second of the season and the fairies were out in droves. Or do fairies come in flocks? Whatever. Saturday seemed even busier than last week, but the numbers say differently, and we all know the numbers are never wrong.

Dusty and Muddy; First Weekend Had Something For Everyone!

After all the news and questions about the wildfires, burn ban, smoking ban and warnings about escaped monkeys, (yes, a monkey warning), it was almost a relief when the festival opened and we could get to taking tickets.

The weekend started out pretty good, Saturday attendance was even better than opening day last year, but Sunday was a little slower to say the least. It’s hard to complain when we got what we’ve been praying for for so long, a good day of steady rain. This weekend the weather looks to be excellent, so it should be a busy one! Continue reading

Trying to reserve judgment on the laser thing, but I’m going to need some convincing.

Opinions?

TRF Will Be Open 8 October as Scheduled

I continue to receive inquiries as to the state of the Texas Renaissance Festival site and whether or not the festival will be open this year, etc. While I am glad so many of you regard the Beefeaters as an authoritative source of information, we aren’t the Texas Renaissance Festival and we are not currently at the TRF site, and I’m not really the best source of information at the best of times, especially before I’ve had my coffee.
