2006 Scarborough Renaissance Festival

On Memorial Day, we went to Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas. This festival is very entertaining. You need more than a day to see all shows and check all vendors and food.

Here's a taste of the festival. I hope you enjoy it.

The festival is all about costumes as you can see from this picture.

If you want a good laugh and humor, then you need to see one of their shows. They're the coolest.
