Milepost 8-30-15 The ultimate summer festival
The RenFest at Holly, Michigan, runs on weekends from late August to Early October each year. I visited on a Saturday and found it uncrowded and in tip-top form. The re-enactors and vendors and visitors all seemed to be in a good mood and ready for some fun. This being my first visit – and photographs being my top priority – I chose not to go in costume. Of course, there were plenty of costume shops open, so I could have rented or purchased a tunic and a sword. Maybe next time.
Here’s a photo line-up of this colorful historical attraction. (Click on any photo to view it in full screen mode.)
Whenever I return to the Michigan Renaissance Festival, I have decided that a sword is a nice thing to have, but I am going to avoid a kilt. That’s just me. Do what you want. It’s all good. And it’s all a lot of fun.
And don’t miss the traditional turkey drumstick for lunch. It’s actually slow-smoked and tasty.
And then there is the ubiquitous dill pickle right out of the barrel.
Hmm… so much to savor and so few summer days left.
