I thought it would make a fun post to tell y'all the differences between regular camping and camping at a ren fair.
When night falls it's time to head over to the bonfire. There are always drummers and fire spinners. There are lots of women dressed as belly dancers and shirtless guys dancing around to the beats of the djembres (African drums - see link above) round the fire. They have started putting up a tent near the bonfire where they play dance music. We call it the "rave tent". Of course we always go rave for a while...
Saturday morning everyone gets in costume and heads to the main gate. We drag ourselves back to camp by nightfall and rest a spell before we go back to the bonfire which is always more lively after a day of fair and drinking. We usually change into regular clothes... though a lot of people don't.
Sunday morning we pack up camp. Some head back into the fair for another day, others head home.
This is me at a bonfire several years ago... LOL. I always have a great time!
