I’ve been to the Bristol Renaissance Faire many times over the years … I’ve lost count, but it’s probably around 10 times. Even though the Faire hasn’t changed that much, it’s always a good time!

This year, I got to see Barely Balanced and they were pretty rad.

They called each other “Small” “Medium” and “Large.” Small and Medium are married.

Sometimes you literally have to support your husband, amirite?

They liked to play with fire.

If you get a chance to head to the Ren Faire (they’re open Saturdays & Sundays through Labor Day), definitely check the schedule and see when Barley Balanced is performing! And of course, go to the joust and stay for the drum jam/dance circle at the end of the day.

Have you been to a Ren Faire? What are your favorite things about it? In addition to all the cool shows, the shopping is fun, and the food is actually pretty good. Maybe one of these years, I’ll rent a costume.
