Arizona Renaissance Festival- March 3, 2018

Hi everyone! I’m back from a two week blogging break! I had to take some time off because of the Easter holiday and to focus on my day job. But I’m back now with a new post about my trip to the Arizona Renaissance Festival! I’m also doing some cross posting of the photos in this post on my second blog, The Estella Imitative, so if you see photos with this blog’s watermark in a post on that blog, I’m just too lazy to reedit photos with the right watermark. πŸ™‚

On March 3, 2018 I went to the Arizona Renaissance Festival. Unlike previous years, I didn’t buy a season pass so I only went to the festival once this year. Since the festival has themed weekends, I wanted to go to Time Travelers weekend. I’ve gone every year during this weekend for a few years now and I enjoy it so much I keep going back.

Since 2018 is the 30th anniversary of the festival, Lego Discovery Center in Arizona Mills Mall created a sculpture out of Legos to celebrate.

The sculpture was located in front of the jousting horses stalls.

I originally intended on staying at the festival all day, but I ended up leaving early to beat the traffic and rest. Since I left early, I didn’t see as many acts as I wanted to. I was able to see Tartanic during their Bagpipes for Breakfast show (Held every at 10:30 AM)…

I also saw the noon joust…

And Adam Crack. Unfortunately, I didn’t take photos.

Since it was Time Travelers weekend, there was Star Wars costumers there watching the joust…

And, my personal favorite, the Tardis parked outside the front gate…

This year, in addition to the Tardis, there was the phone booth from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure…

And, much to my joy, the Ghostbusters Echo 1…

Overall, I had a fun day at the festival. I wish I could’ve stayed longer, but I’m happy I was able to go at all. I didn’t dress up, or plan to dress up at all this year. Since I’m currently in the slow but steady process of weight loss, I didn’t want to spend a lot of time and money making a costume from my to-make list because I knew I wouldn’t be able to fit into next year. So, costuming must wait until next year. πŸ™‚

That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!
