Arizona Renaissance Festival


Last month saw us at the Renaissance Festival, in Gold Canyon..

Always strange to see what Americans do with the ‘re-enactments’, so different from those in the UK…

…Starting with the buildings.

They are a little different, given that they are already there in Britain, and we have no current control over the designs of yesteryear.


Typically, where I come ftowerrom, they don’t build stuff that shouldn’t be leaning. Yes, Europe has the leaning tower of Pisa, and Caerphilly Castle has part of a tower that leans even more than that, but that’s not really a design ‘feature’ that l know of.

And I am so curious to know the internal dimensions of the room. Can I fit my Cali-King bed in there and still have room to swing a cat?


Re-enactments to come…
