Ever since we’ve moved to Texas we have heard great things about the Texas Renaissance Festival in Magnolia, TX. So…this year, without further ado, we will be hitting it up. We are planning on going on the ‘school day’ since our children are youngsters and would enjoy and educational experience about an old school English Village. One of the many cool things about the Texas Renaissance Festival is that they have themed weekends. Some of them are: Oktoberfest, All Hallows Eve, Pirate adventure, and Celtic Christmas just to name a few. Folks I’m telling you peeps dress up and thoroughly enjoy themselves at this here festival.
