Tennessee Renaissance Festival, 2007

Life in The Upper South...



Recently, Keely, her boyfriend Taurus, Isaac, and I went to the Tennessee Renaissance Festival. Tenn-Ren is held on weekends throughout the month of May, in a shady faire-ground just south of Nashville, Tennessee.

Many of the Tenn-Ren faire-goers wear costumes. Some costumes are medieval, some are Renaissance, some are fantasy, and some are just amusing. For people who enjoy dressing up, it's a garb fest!

Of course, you don't have to wear a costume. It's fun just to walk around and look at the merchant's wares and watch the various shows. Isaac didn't dress up but Keely, Taurus, and I did.

Here are some images from Tennessee Renaissance Festival, 2007:

I enjoyed your photos, Genevieve! I've been to a similar festival near Kansas City.

It's fun to dress up and to see what everyone else is wearing. Honestly, I could just watch the crowd and enjoy it.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
