There is certainly no dull corner at the Carolina Renaissance Faire. I have never expected, of all places, to see a live camel in Charlotte, North Carolina and you get to ride on one if you wish to. If by chance you happen to have anger management issues, the vegetable justice is an instant therapy. This is the only game where one can throw vegetables, in most cases tomatoes, to the actor who insults you without the fear of a lawsuit. And if throwing stuff is not enough, try climbing the castle towers or bungee jump to sweat yourself out

There is of course no renaissance faire without pipes and drums, harp, songs and merrymaking.

As for me, the archery was all I needed to call it my day. I better get myself my own bow and arrow. What do you think?
