Sword Fighting, Belly Dancing, Turkey Legs: A Day at the Renaissance Fair

Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in the 16th century?

When we heard about a big Renaissance fair coming to town, we had to send Courtenay DeHoff to check it out.

At the Scarborough Renaissance Festival, Courtenay spent a day full of sword fighting, belly dancing, and turkey leg eating.

The 16th Century style fair is set in the days of King Henry VIII!

Visitors enjoy full combat armored jousts, Birds of Prey exhibitions, the Mermaid Lagoon and Renaissance entertainment on 27 stages.

Festival-goers can also discover exquisite crafts in 200 village shoppes and marvel at the artisan demonstrations. Every weekend has a different theme and a variety of special events.

The Scarborough Renaissance Festival runs through May 29th in Waxahachie, Texas.
