Students visit the Renaissance Festival
The Renaissance Festival is a 16th century European style art and entertainment festival combining outdoor theater, circus entertainment, arts and crafts marketplace, a feast fit for royalty, and more. The students experienced the clashing of armor and the thundering of hooves of a full combat joust at the King's Tournament Arena. The combination of entertainment and educational activities at the Festival helped give the students a proper perspective of what a marketplace celebration in the Renaissance Era was like.
