|Slay a dragon. We have one of these for the past 13 years...|
|hubba bubba and I starting our day off|
|Looking at the map, debating what to do first|
|I just wanted a close up of the crown I made...|
|Don Juan and Miguel|
Here is a series of whip shots from Don Juan and Esmerelda (The fair Esmerelda and hubba calls her. A little whip crush methinks) He had two bundles of pasta/-. She had to whip through one and leave the other intact. She's good.
|Queen and her princesses at the joust|

|Our knight, Sir Edgeron. He was a cutie.|
|Sir Maxamillian (the cheater) lancing through the rings|
ANATOMY OF A TILT:
We then headed to my favorite booth...the chocolate booth. Boys got a slab of rocky road fudge to share, I got a caramel apple with pecans and drizzled with white and dark chocolate. (and a personal note to the teenage girl working behind the counter...I am sorry you dont want to be there, but it is your job and you need to learn how to talk to people instead of mumbling and trying to figure out the math on your fingers)
So ontoto our favorite act of the entire faire...THE LONDON BROIL!!! (London Broil Core Audience...huah!) I have seen these guys every year for the past 14 years here at Carolina Renfest. I have seen them get a little older, a little grayer, but still so darn funny!!) Peter was a 5 months old his first London Broil Show...he is now 13. I LOVE the London Broil. I think the reason I enjoy them year after year is that they obviously love juggling together. They have fun. Yes, it is their job, but they are like 3 best friends who goof off on stage, while working. Its really just FUN to watch the chemistry between them.
Here is Matt with his pretty princess hair(seriously? Did you lose a bet??), opening the show with some flames of fury juggling:
|You can see where the torch is starting to get away from him|
|"hey, no big deal..."|
Here is Matt being proclaimed KING of the show with a pretty princess tiara, to go with his pretty princess hair....again, did you lose a bet?? .
|"try this at home kids...'cause where else you gonna try it??"|
Finn then tried his hand at Jacobs ladder....it did not end well. It ended with him on his butt in the hay.
Our next stop was BARELY BALANCED. These guys, Small, Medium and Large are amazing together. They balance on each other, juggle, contort etc.
|This kid was chosen from the audience. His face was priceless.|
|Her body is SICK! I want abs like hers when I grow up.|
Our next stop was the Falconry Show. We always enjoy this one, they have a large variety of really amazingly beautiful birds.
|Jake the Harris Hawk.|
|Archimedes the eurasian eagle owl.|
|Widget the barn owl|
|Cricket, the Aplomado falcon|
Then the final Don Juan and Miguel show of the day. This is world champ and guinness book record holder Adam Crack, whipping open a can of soda.

Sunburn, joust, spending way too much money...nothing like a good old Renaissance festival. Thanks again for another GREAT year!!
