MN Renaissance Festival – Fairy Fest Weekend 2014

Last year I wrote about the Minnesota Renaissance Festival’s Fairy House competition. It’s a contest in which adults and children are encouraged to submit their fairy house masterpieces in hopes to win prizes. Over the weekend, Renaissance visitors are able to vote on their favorite house. We had such a great time last year that we had to go back for Fairy Fest again this year. Here are a few of the houses I was really impressed with (click on the image to make the photo even larger):

And of course, a trip to the Renaissance would not be complete with out seeing Twig the Fairy…

Fairy Festival 2013: Fairy House Contestants

Last weekend we went to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, which happened to be the “Fairy Festival” weekend. It was a fantastic weekend to go because our daughter LOVES fairies and in addition to the 10+ fairies that were circulating around the grounds, they also had a fairy house building contest. I did not expect the houses to be as elaborate as they were! I decided to snap a few pictures to show you all how incredible and detailed these houses were. I took the pics on my phone, so they are not the best quality photos, but they are still worth looking at! The images below are small, but if you click on a photo, a larger image will appear so you can see more detail.

This is the fairy realm where you could go watch the fairies play music with bells and dance. They also had some animals to pet.

This is my daughter meeting Twig the Fairy. She is the highlight of the Ren Fest for many children. If you aren't familiar with her, google search her name and you will quickly become fascinated as my daughter is here.
