Renaissance Festival – Plantersville, Texas

  • I highly recommend the turkey legs because A. they are huge. B. they are deliciously unhealthy. and C. they are huge.

So there you have it! I’m sure I left off a bunch…but these are just some of my personal favorites! Let me know if I left off any that are super important and I’ll add to the list! A lot of these are free…so they are perfect for the broke college student looking for some entertainment!

Happy Fall!
