Today was the final day for the 2012 Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly.  With good weather for the final weekend, the crowds were large and fun was had by all.  My wife and I included.  We took in the festival on Saturday, and enjoyed the wine sampling, chocolate sampling, the entertainers, jousting, and more than anything else, people watching.

 The Renaissance Festival welcomes, actually encourages it's patrons to dress the part.  It makes it hard to tell who is working and who is just there to have a good time.  That's sort of the point, I guess. 

They will be back again next year, starting around the middle of August.
