We did it again! Just like last year, we spent a day at the 2012 Arizona Renaissance Festival, one of the highlights of Florence (the other “highlights” of Florence are the prisons). This time around though, I think we may have been more entertained watching the… er, interesting characters there.
Interesting characters leering down at the… other interesting characters coming through the entrance.
Queen Catherine (how did she get this job?!)
Axe throw master
He probably won’t make it as a lumber jack…
I had the advantage in the ninja star throw… Can you guess what it was?
He gave me an honorary knighthood certificate (it should’ve been a ninja-hood).
Being told he needs to do more housework! I’d like to see a husband who doesn’t need to do more housework…
We watched the first jousting tournament:
Look at those glossy, chestnut brown locks… the horse is pretty too.
The evil knight… who happened to be the knight we were cheering on. Victory by any means!
This guy cheated. Apparently he too follows the motto of ‘victory by any means’. It’s a pretty good motto.
Oh my gosh. Do you think he’s okay?
Apparently she is a fashion consultant…
Yes, we visited the petting zoo again:
We tried to feed the babies but the older sheep kept nudging it out of the way!
One of Mother Goose’s flock.
I think we were more scared than she was.
I don’t think they were part of the festival…
Her legs go on forever!
Budlight Knight, probably imbibed in too much before noon… He must really like Budlight.
Well, props to him for creativity at least.
