Weekend Watching

The plan for the weekend was to stay home watching football, one of my favorite sports programs, ESPN College GameDay and the backyard visitors, but

when I heard there would be another group of my favorite guys in town, men in kilts,

I had to attend the Renaissance Festival.  There was an opportunity to watch a wonderful assortment of people in fabulous outfits and costumes enjoying a superb summer day at the Highland Fling themed weekend.

There was so much to see and experience, including knights and fairies,

unicorns,

and the Flint Scottish

Pipe Band.

This entertaining and unique festival ushers in autumn every year in our area and each day I’m watching little signs of fall creeping into the landscape.
