Last weekend, we went back in time to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, TX. Since my children are huge fan of Medieval Times, this was sure to be a fun day!
The 35th season of Scarborough Renaissance Festival® runs every Saturday & Sunday and Memorial Day Monday through May 25, 2015 and is open 10 am – 7 pm each day (rain or shine.) The weather was in the high 80s with no clouds in sight. It was hot, but beautiful! (They did allow us to bring in bottled water, which I highly suggest!)
Scarborough Renaissance Festival® is interactive fun for everyone, 16th Century style! Visitors will enjoy the thrill of full combat jousts and Birds of Prey exhibitions, non-stop Renaissance entertainment on 21 stages, enchanting Mermaids, Human Chess Matches, children’s Knighting Ceremonies, hundreds of costumed performers, games of skill, Renaissance rides and so much more! Make sure you bring cash, as many vendors only accepted that as a form of payment.
My children enjoyed the rides and the food, though they wanted to see more shows. Keep in mind, some of the shows appear to be “safe” for children, but there are adult jokes and actions around every corner. (Even in the juggling act, the juggler told children to “shut-up” and later gave a 3 year old a lighter as his “prize”.) Just use caution and sit in the back so you can walk out, if needed.
