Orlando Bingles’ 2011 Summer Road Trip – Day 15

by Bingle on Aug.27, 2011, under Richard Bingle Family

Bristol, baby! But not Bristol Motor Speedway like last last time, this time it was the Bristol Renaissance Faire near the Illinois/Wisconsin border.

We’ve been to the Bristol Ren Faire several times over the years and as one of the largest Ren Faires in the country, it has always been fun. As we always do when we go to a Ren Faire, we wore matching tie-dye t-shirts (since none of us have any period correct garb) which always gets us a mixture of compliments and comments from attendees and performers alike.

We saw several acts that we’d seen and enjoyed in the past including Dirk and Guido and MooNie the Magnif’Cent and the joust. Sure, their acts haven’t really changed that much over the years, but it’s still fun. Add to that the elaborate period and fantasy costumes, the music, the fake accents, the food, people calling you “m’Lord”, and the beautiful weather – how can you go wrong? They even take Master Card and Lady Visa!
