This is the final weekend for this year's Renaissance Festival.  Many fans think it's the best one to attend, for a few reasons.  Most people have already gone to it so the crowds may be lighter (I wouldn't believe that for a second!) and some of the artists or eateries may offer deep discounts.  (Good luck on that too!)  One thing guaranteed, it will be good old fashioned 16th century FUN!

The theme is Sweet Endings, meaning plenty of chocolate and wine!  Hey, I'm there.
