Transcript UJL1 JL UM Adventure, merriment and ma^ic await tnose tnat enter the ^ates at Ren Pest Go back to a time of lords and ladies, knights and gypsies, turkey legs and ale. Return to the reign of Henry VIII and to the dawn of the Renaissance. The Texas Renaissance Festival held its 26th festival of jousting, mud pits and shopping Saturdays and Sundays from Sept. 30 through Nov. 12 in Plantersville. The festival spanned over 50 acres that holds 350 shops and 22 stages. The shops contained a multitude of various jewelry, leather, crystal and gems. Sporadically placed around the festival were stands that possessed the popular flowered head pieces that attendees wore throughout the day. Events took place all day at Ren Fest. More than 500 actors entertained the multitude of visitors that entered the magical world on 22 stages in the fairgrounds. One of the more popular events was the Mud Show. At the Mud Show two men held a contest over which city is the best, Sparta or Troy. A third man played a judge. In the show, the men did various things that involved mud. Other events included juggling, knife throwing, mock executions, balancing acts and various skits dealing with figures such as Robin Hood and King Henry VIII. There were also games and activities for participants to take part in at Ren Fest. Face Three fairies stand guard to greet those seeking adventure into the magic and romance that is the Renaissance. Pliolo by Ashly Alberto By: Ashly Alberto painting is popular among kids, but for adults, henna tatoos were available. Festival attendees also got a picture of their aura taken or had their fortune told by a gypsy. The highlight of the day was the parade that went around the fairgrounds. In the parade, all of the gypsies, royalty, fairies, barbarians and Scotts got together and showcase their beautiful and sometimes outrageous costumes. One of the most extravagant aspects of the festival was the costumes. Fairies adorned with beautifully colored wings, queens floated around in large dresses made of the finest material and barbarians stomped around in their best loin cloth. For UH students, Ren Fest was a nice escape from the pressures of school. Many students like Carolina Amengual went just to view the costumes. "The costumes were really well made!' said the junior print journalism major. "They really took you into the environment and back to the time of the Renaissance!' Costumes were made available to rent at the entrance to the festival so that attendees could participate in the fun. Whether a student was a fairy, gypsy Scott or barbarian, the Texas Renaissance Festival welcomed all into its romance, magic and mystification.
