We highly recommend Arsene Dupin's "Magikhana" show. Highly entertaining! Also, the Washing Well Wenches and Ded Bob are hysterical if you're attending without children. They're so naughty!
The weather was sunny and hot. I wore Jeans and a t-shirt.
Check with the Faire website for discounts. Goldstar sold us tickets for the kids yet kids were free last weekend.
I wore comfortable clothing, especially shoes - lots of walking. .
bring enough $ as food is expensive. Water is allowed to be brought in, but no food is allowed in so picnic lunch is out - perhaps a good idea as park was clean despite the number of people who attended.
So much to see - important to check schedule for events of interest, map important to have to plan the day to attend and see all that is of interest. Only event schedule is free; map with explanation of events must be purchased but is necessary to plan the day's activities.
Workers/performers were especially friendly, welcoming and helpful. Everyone treated with the utmost respect. Also, it was impressing that ALL performers engaged the audience which made the event especially fun-filled.
