This weekend hubby and I went to the medieval fest in Nabburg.
We've always like going to the Renaissance festivals in the States, and that's pretty much what we expected. Not so.
This fest was located in the middle of town instead of a open field. People still dressed up. Quite a few, actually. They still had people working in the old ways, i.e. blacksmiths, chain maille, spinning, etc. Plenty of vendors hawking their wares.
The biggest difference that I saw was the lack of shows. Basically, once you walked through the town, you'd seen everything.
There is another medieval fest a little farther away. Apparently that one is more like what I expected. Hubby and I don't have time to make it there this summer as it's only going on in July and I leave in 2 days for the States. So, if we're here next summer, we'll check that one out.
The surprise of the day is that I found 2 pair of sandals. I have very wide feet and it's hard for me to find comfortable, cute shoes, but I did there. Bonus.
What about you? Do you like going to Renaissance festivals? What's your favorite part?
