During the 7-week long Michigan Renaissance Faire, the property at Dixie Highway, Holly was filled with houses, shops and structures that were created to emulate an old English village. Upon arrival, the world changes from 21st century to being medieval in a snap. Even visitors came dressed in costumes taking pride in every details of what they wear. The smell of smoked turkey leg filled the air. Jugglers, dancers, singers, actors and actresses perform on stages and spaces which have become a home for them for years. But what is strikingly obvious is the effort everyone has put into making this old English village remarkably surreal.
