Visitors can experience its excite ment and revelry every weekend from through Nov. 9, from 9 a.m. to dark. The six weekend was sails will be highlighted by music, drama, dance, games, arts and crafts, and food. Guests can be entertained by everything from Shakespearean plays and madrigals to jousting and chariot races. Visitors can try their hand at fencing, archery and the lance toss or stroll around the park taking in the original handcrafted wares on display and for sale. Close to 300 craftmen will hawk their wares — from rare butterflies to wind socks. Artists have worked months to create jewelry, clothing, stone ware, leathercraft, stained glass, sculptures, paintings and more. Many will actually be demonstrating their craft, so visitors can watch glass blowing, candle sculpting, and wood carving, to name a few. A chainsaw artist, who carves wooden sculptures out of dead trees, carved a totem pole of all the characters at the Festival which will be on display. All these activities are guaranteed to make one hungry, so famished festi val-goers may partake of a veritable feast. Turkey legs, gyro sandwiches, fish and chips, empanadas, pizza napoli, stuffed spuds, fried cheese, but tered corn and apple dumplings will be fea tured, along with beer, wine, soda and tea. Those with majestic tastes may indulge in the King’s Feast. Commoners with less extravagant tastes should plan on bringing plentiful pounds to indulge in the repast and mirth-making. Discount tickets are available at Safeway stores and cost $9 for adults and $4 for children. A free campground will be available for those who want to spend the week end. The festival is about 45 minutes from College Sta tion on FM 1774. Take Highway 6 South to Na- vasota, go east on High way 105, turn right on FM 1774 at Plantersville and drive 6 miles to the site. The festival is halfway be tween Plantersville and Magnolia. — by Nancy Neukirchner Members of the Society of Creative Anachronisms duel in the sun at the Texas Renaissance Festival.
