Scouting the Renaissance Festival

This weekend James and I hit the opening weekend of the Renaissance festival. Which in case your state doesn’t have one is an awesome event where the weirdest group of people come together at a medieval amusement park. There are costumes, shows, jousting, food, and so much more. Above all it makes for superb people watching. I went this weekend with two goals – #! get a flower crown and #2 eat a turkey leg. I accomplished both within the first hour so everything else was just a bonus.

I wore my favorite polka dotted scout tee which I realized has never made an appearance on the blog. I have multiple other scouts in the works. It is really such a great pattern – simple straight forward construction, versatile style, and endless variation possibilities! I added the tiny pocket from Grainline Studio’s Tiny pocket tank to give it a little pizzaz!

On top of all the other cool stuff we stumbled upon elephant and camel rides which I found to be super random but we jumped on the opportunity to ride an elephant. If you know me you know I had quite a fondness for elephants and this was my first time getting to ride one. Crossed that off my bucket list!!

What sort of fun things did you do this weekend?

    I can’t help but be jealous of your warmth! It’s cold here in Philly, so I’ve been holed up in my apartment. Just me and my sewing machine :) Looked like you had fun!

    I loveeee the RenFest! It’s so much fun and one of my happy childhood memories – my dad supervised one of my school field trips there once and it was so much fun!

    That top is literally my perfect top. Like every one of my favorite shirts to wear is that shape, haha!

    one of my friends is a performer in a mediaeval re-enactment group – I found myself once sewing some viking like tunics for him which was bizarre but it all looks fun!
