Four Winds Renaissance Faire

Well, I really don’t have much to say about this trip. Gossy Jr. was high on pixie sticks and out scaring the animals while I was in an archery contest. We didn’t take any pictures until the last 15 minutes when we were on a carriage ride. The pictures aren’t all that great, I admit it. So this is just a small highlight.

Four Winds is just South of Tyler, Texas. Four hours away from where I live. We were able to walk around the whole festival in about 15 to 20 minutes. (We stopped a lot.) On a brighter note: There were no lines to worry about! We are really used to bigger festivals so it’s not easy to discuss one so small. I’m not saying it was a bad experience but it wasn’t our favorite…

The people were amazing though. We did manage to see one of the shows~ He is known as the Professional Showoff. He was so amazingly funny. Gossy Jr. just loved the fact that he juggled fire and almost injured himself several times throughout the show… I defiantly recommend seeing his show just maybe at a different festival.

Overall, we had a good time but I don’t see us going back any time soon.

Tips:
– Dress comfortably. I wore a costume and it was hot as hell. If you do wear a costume, pick something that won’t exhaust you. It can get hot REALLY fast.

– Take time to see all the shows and talk to some of the folks. There is always a fascinating story gone on. I even talked to a couple who were celebrating their 3rd anniversary. They met and fell in love there. 🙂
