  1. We fell in love with the Renaissance Festival this year and my daughter was asking to go to Yuletide Village before we even got to the car!

  2. I would love to win! I’ve been wanting to go for some time now but Christmas is always so busy and expensive. I primarily do experiences instead of gifts for my boyfriend’s daughters.

  3. We missed visiting last year and are excited to maybe go this year! We can’t afford it but winning would be amazing 🙂
