Entertainment at the Ohio Renaissance Festival

This weekend is the last for the festival; where did the time go? As it is Halloween this weekend who knows what kinds of costumes/creatures may come out to celebrate. But for this post I want to share with you that there was even more to experience at the festival like the entertainers and their shows.

These two are the Kamikaze Fireflies. A variety show team that received a standing ovation on America’s got talent and holds four Guinness World Records; one being for having the most flaming hula hoops on the body at once.

More entertainers….

There were sing along shows in the pubs (some got a bit bawdy) and then there was this at the Muditorium. They were putting on a morality play about Dante’s trip through hell. Here, his tour guideVirgil (disguised as a devil) was “curing” him of the sin of lust. Brrrrrrr……

There were magic shows, belly dancers, minstrels, the barbarian battles (of course) and the wonderful jousters. The jousting knights did both acts of skill where they aimed to knock down targets while in full gallop and then, of course, go at each other with their lances.

Fare thee well, Renaissance Festival. Until we meet again next year.
