Interestingly enough, my nephew, Nick turned me on to this a few weeks ago, asking if we'd be bringing Master Brody (my son) to the event, and had he not informed me, I don't think I would have known.

But far be it from us to miss out on giant smoked turkey legs, a pub crawl, jousting, jugglers, magic, comedy, ax throwing, bow and arrows, and more this weekend at the New York Capital District Renaissance Festival, Saturday and Sunday, June 11th and 12th at Indian Ladder Farms in Altamont, NY.

On both days the event runs from 11 am -6 pm.

As it would turn out, my nephew Nick isn't just attending the event, he'll be dressed in character too, something that I wasn't too shocked to hear.  He loves this stuff and "It immerses you a lot more, " he explained to me.
