Transcript Cexas 'Renaissance There was something in the air this year that made the Texas Renaissance Festival a bit more special - and it wasn't the unexpected chilly weather of the first weekend - it was ... magic! The theme for this year's festival was "The Magical Realm," chosen to construct an enchanting and beautiful garden that would add a tranquil ambiance to the annual festival. "We are excited about our new shows and setups, especially The Magic Garden," Marketing Director Orivis Melvin said. The Magic Garden was designed to honor the magic that exists in the New Market Village and The Magical Realm. "The garden has been discussed for about a year and a half and was George Coulam's idea," he said. Coulam, owner and president of T.R.F, enjoys gardening and has designed lovely gardens for the festival, including the Rose Garden, the Water Garden, the English Garden and this year's highlight, the Magic Garden. "I have visited the most beautiful gardens in the world and I want to share the best of what I have seen with our guests," said Coulam. Festival floriculturist Virginia Spinks called the gardens "a gardener's dream hidden in a recreated 16th century village." "It's a nice stroll through the gardens, kind of romantic," Dennis Cowan, a patron from Lafayette, La., said. But there were new attractions this year that guests were also drawn to, like Mourgoth's Outworld Adventure, Arsene Dupin, Isaac Fawlkes, Wine, Women and Song and The Naughty Nymphs.

Members of the Society for Creative Anachronism battle it out dur- . ing a chivalric match at the festival. The SCA is a worldwide nonprofit organization that studies the Middle Ages and Renaissance through reenactment. Photo by Kevin Harwerth Cindy Bagwell of Houston said she especially enjoyed the new act, The Naughty Nymphs. "I'm looking forward to seeing it next year," said Bagwell. Bagwell was one of the many patrons who played dress up at the festival. "About a quarter of the people here today are in costumes, and we always enjoy and appreciate their enthusiasm," Melvin said. He was also wearing renaissance fashion. Some of the returning acts included The Dead Bob Show, a festival favorite. It's a skit that includes a sarcastic and mischievous skeleton dummy that causes guests to blush and chuckle by embarrassing members of the audience. Cast in Bronze was expected to be another success this year, Melvin said. Last year "the audience was mesmerized by the unique sound of the carillon." (A carillon is a stationary set of chromatically tuned bells in a tower, usually played from a keyboard.) Over by the sounds of tambourines was Holly Mathys, from San Antonio. She and her friends were tempted to dance along in the Gypsy Dance Theatre. "I decided to bring some friends along to show them how neat the festival can be," she said. While some enjoyed the shows, others enjoyed munching on turkey legs, sausage on a stick and mufaletta sandwiches, among other ethnic foods. Many other patrons took pleasure in getting their faces painted, bodies tattooed in henna, hair braiding and having their fortunes told by gypsies. Artisans and craftspeople also enthralled visitors with jewelry, leather clothing, hats and sculptures, as well as many other things. The little ones were also amused by the acts of jugglers, magicians, musicians, puppet shows and, without a doubt, the elephant rides. Not only was the festival full of magic this year, but as always, it was packed with splendor! - Lupi Velancia \£6>£? (community llexas Irvenaissaiice Festival
