Fire, Mystery and Romance- sounds like the title to a sultry romance novel, right? It's actually the theme for this weekend's entertainment at the Virginia Renaissance Faire.
Never been to a "faire" before? Think about all the cool, interesting things about the Medieval period and then shove it into a month-long, outdoor, costumed-festival and that's pretty much what a Renaissance Faire is like. There's sword fighting, archery, mulled wine, women in beautiful dresses and corsets, hand-forged armor, actors and minstrels and plenty of roasted turkey legs.
This weekend, May 31-June 1st, features "strangers" or performers from the East. Watch fantastic feats of juggling, aerial acrobatics, fire spitting and more. There will be tightrope walkers, contortionists and an Illustionist.
Tickets are $9 for adults or free for children under the age of 6. Doors open at 10 am. For directions, visit: http://www.varf.org/directions.html
