Juli and I took my son to the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Irwindale on Saturday. The weather was beautiful and we had a very relaxing weekend.
We've gone for several years now. This year my son wanted to be an assassin disguised as a peasant, so we accessorized his costume with throwing knives and a wooden main gauche. He bought leather bracers at the Faire.
However, now he aspires to be a squire in the Royal Court. We might have to take a more active role next year. It looks like "participant" classes start on weekends at least a month before the Fair starts. Perhaps the best way to get our feet more wet is as a Friend of the Faire.
