How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Not much "pleasure" here. Thank goodness it was an overcast and not-too-hot day! Getting tickets was a nightmare, with over one hour in line and major chaos because they seemed unprepared for all the people. After 49 years in L.A. this was our first visit to the Faire and will probably be our last. If you don't dress the part....you are made uncomfortable. These participants take themselves way too seriously! They should just get together somewhere and admire each others costumes. Loud and obnoxious and in your face! It was also dusty and dirty. The saving grace was the "Humble Boys"????? who were hilarious with their Russian Circus routine and the glass blowing exhibit was interesting. We stayed less than 3 hrs....and the round-trip drive was almost that long. Heard so much about the fun at the Faire.....but was so disappointed.
