The Texas Renaissance festival is the largest of its kind with over 300,000 festival-goers visiting each year. What makes many Houstonians enjoy the festival is the 16th century costumes that the participants wear. What also surprises many and adds to the authenticity of the festival is the fact that the participants speak in the manner that was custom during that time period. A festival just isn't a festival without it's shopping and sight-seeing. There are over 330 shops in which visitors can buy a variety of trinkets to take home and remind them of their time at the festival. Most who visit the festival do not come for the shopping, but for the entertainment. Such acts as the "Flaming Idiots" juggling trio and Merlin the Magician performed at the renaissance. There are also such events as the jousting to cheer or jeer at. For the little ones, there's Sherwood Forest which is a section of the festival with games and rides. So, the children are always busy and entertained at the festival and a good time is had by the entire family. And for those who never want to leave at the end of the day, there is a camping ground in which visitors can camp over night to experience all the festivities. The Texas Renaissance Festival was a success this year, just as it has been for the past 25. It's a part of Texas and definitely a part of Houston. • by Linda Canales Tew ReMiUcutce, Feifivai FacH When the Renaissance Festival was started in 1975 by George Coulam, there were only three stages on I 5 acres of land. Today the festival is an entire village on over 90 acres of land with 22 stages and a magical world of fun. TEXAS REnAISSAnCE FESTIVAL • 265
