Photographs of Florida Renaissance Festival at Quiet Waters Park on 3/7/15

Florida Renaissance Festival at Quiet Waters Park on Saturday, March 7, 2015.  I had such a blast and the faire is so much bigger than I remembered, great performers, food and amazing music.

This weekends theme was “Dragons & Wizards and Thrones, Oh My! – March 7 and 8 – One does not simply walk into Mordor, but you can walk directly out of the pages of your favorite books! From the Red Wedding to the Shire, join us as we fill our village with Hobbits, Wizards, Dragons, White Walkers, Fairies and Elves.”

You have one more weekend to enjoy this years festival  – “Kilts & Colleens – St Patrick’s Weekend – March 14 and 15 – Celebrate the luck and culture of the Irish, the Scottish and the Celtic traditions of the North Seas! Grab your kilt and get your Celt on! Show your Celtic pride!”
