This year I'm going to have a little photo booth at the Faire In The Grove in Forest Grove, Oregon Saturday, May 3rd and Sunday May 4th.
It's an annual event held at McMenamins Grand Lodge.
Here are a few photos from a couple years ago (I didn't take my camera last year) to give you an idea of a fraction of all the fun stuff there. The kids love the actual fencing lessons with real swords, foils, and rapiers and the sword fighting arena for the kids where they have paddle swords that allow you to smack the crap out of your sibling and not do any damage.
The merchants have fabric, costumes, jewelry, candles, soaps, weapons, tools, and more. I got an amazing hair stick there a few years ago, which I've unfortunately lost. I put it somewhere I wouldn't loose it. There are demonstrations of how to make beads for jewelry, how they did wood working without power tools, and others. So much to learn and see and do.
There is also a battle competition that is always amusing to watch.
I would LOVE to see all my friends and family come out and have some fun (well, at least those local) - and stop by my booth and have a photo taken with your swag.
