Alex and I with our Dragons Breath Sarsaparilla bottles aka root beer with NO ALKEHAL! Ha ha! We entered the fair through a castle entrance in a field in the middle of nowhere in blazing hot sun-Our hottest day of the summer at a whopping 80 some degrees.

Have you ever been to a Renaissance Faire?
