If you are local to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and have never been to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival, you must go no later than May 28, 2018. It can be a great family outing with lots of fun and entertainment. The gates open on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm.
It is a family tradition to visit the renaissance festival each year when it comes to Waxahachie, Texas and we are thankful to have been invited as guests of Scarborough Fair this year.
Scarborough Renaissance Festival
Check out these two. Their costumes are awesome and they are very friendly, welcoming photos. One thing I love about going to Scarborough Fair is seeing all the costumes people wear.
Here comes the King’s Army marching along the fairgrounds.
The parade starts at 1:00 pm each day of the festival. The route goes through the entire park and you will want to step out of the shop you are browsing in to watch. This is the best way to see all the amazing costumes and entertainers at one time. Get your cameras out, while they walk by they will pose for shots and wave, so say hello.
Royalty is always wearing purple, so it is easy to spot the King and Queen of Scarborough Fair.
The Fireflicker Dragon can be found exploring the festival and is very excited to meet all the knights and princesses. You can also purchase some of your very own handmade dragon jewelry.
If you have magic in your heart you might get some dragon gold! Hours are spent posing for silly photos with kids and everyone makes priceless memories meeting a real dragon.
The Spindleshanks are tall friendly creatures that linger around and love to have their photos taken.
The King’s Nuts are a staple on our trip. From roasted almonds to pecans, get your free sample and buy a bag in one of three sizes. The cinnamon sugar nuts are delicious and even the kids like to spend their souvenir money on their own bag to take home.
It is one thing I look forward to every time I come to Scarborough Fair. My favorite is the walnuts and my son loves the almonds. These are the best nuts I have ever bought.
The Fire Whip Show is my favorite show to watch when I come to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival. This guy is one whip-cracker and a funny one at that. He is a 23 time Guinness World Record holder for whip cracking.
Do you know why a whip makes the cracking sound? It’s because the tip of the whip is traveling fast enough to break the sound barrier and creates a sonic boom. Pretty cool!
When you walk around you can find all kinds of entertainment to watch or find guys like this playing music. There is also great entertainment for kids. While walking around you will find shops that you buy renaissance clothing, knives and other cool things, like glassblowing. There is something for all ages.
One thing I would recommend is to bring cash for the food you buy. One of my favorite places to eat at is Fish and Chips down in the Holly Field area.
Every time we come my daughter wants to get a henna tattoo. They have various designs ranging in prices. You can get a small henna for $10 and go home with a souvenir that lasts a couple of weeks.
