Last we attended The Ohio Renaissance Festival for the 1st time as a family. (you can read more about that here and also watch LOTS of fun video footage) We had such a great time that we are going back for another round. The people watching is always fascinating!
The Ohio Renaissance Festival features the most unique blend of entertainment you can find anywhere. Experience comedy, live action, dangerous feats, magic, music, dance, swordplay, and so much more.
Here is a little more about what to expect this year.
