A month ago today was my second wedding anniversary! My husband and I were married in October of 2013 and we can't believe it's already been two years. Sometimes it feels like a long time ago, and sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday. We slept in late on our rainy Sunday anniversary and our friends Adrianne and Tristan texted us, asking if we wanted to go to King Richard's Faire. It was the last day and weekend of the Faire and we had been meaning to go since it had opened for the season. We've been once before, it's a lot of fun! So many acts, vendors selling amazing things, and a generally fun atmosphere to be in. It was very impromptu but we decided- what the heck, let's do it! We showed up really late in the day- after 2 pm. Check out some of the snaps I took throughout the day below!
My favorite performer both years I've attended KRF is Jacques Ze Whipper. "A show so funny it will crack... you up." He's got whips, he's got fire, and he's got puns. His show is funny, impressive, and very enjoyable! What's more interesting is that his day job he's a reporter for WBUR. Crazy! If you ever find yourself at KRF please check his show out, and don't forget to bring cash so you can give him a nice tip afterwards- something I totally forgot to do this time around. Whoops! Sorry dude!
Another VERY enjoyable part of KRF is the joust! Everyone has their own knight they get to cheer for, and who doesn't love yelling HUZZAH at jousting knights? The photos for this part are sparse as I was too busy rooting for our knight, who ultimately lost.
Any Zelda nerds out there? I'm not sure about you guys, but I remember going to TOWN on Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64 when it came out back in the day. I played the Super Nintendo versions as well, but Ocarina of Time was my JAM. Of course we stopped by the Ocarina vendor and he played us a few tunes from the game- which we were thrilled with! Adrianne bought her very own and we expect her to regale us with some tunes very soon..
So there you have it, our anniversary adventure at King Richard's Faire! It's located in Carver, MA and runs every year from September to late October. We hope to dress the part the next time we attend! Check them out on Facebook for more information! I think it's worth it to mention that they do hold weddings, so any renaissance nerds reading this you should probably check it out... and if want a fun loving photographer who is SO DOWN to dress the part on your renaissance wedding day please let me know, I'd love to help you out! ;)
