Forget your cares and step back in time to this 30-acre re-created 16th Century English village and enjoy over 400 years of fun in a single day! The festival offers something for everyone featuring nearly 100 shows daily on 11 stages, over 135 unique arts and crafts shops, hearty food and drink, games of skill and human-powered rides to amuse all ages.
Over 150 costumed characters welcome you to the village! Rub elbows with Royalty as you cheer your favorite knight to victory in the thrilling Full-armored Tournament Joust. Welcoming you to a festive day in the village are dueling swordsmen, rowdy pirates, nobles, peasants, and daring jugglers. The sprawling landscape is dotted with hundreds of unique shops in the Medieval Marketplace featuring many one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted items. See time-honored crafts of glassblowing, stone carving, blacksmithing, leather tooling, boot making, and more demonstrated. The air is filled with the scents and smells of the foods of the Renaissance period. Feast like Royalty on juicy, giant roasted turkey legs, fresh baked bread bowls overflowing with soups and stews, fish ‘n chips, steak-on-a-stake, succulent roasted corn on the cob and a wide variety of the finest ales and wines. There’s something for everyone’s taste buds!
Visitors of all ages will be amused by the games of skill and human-powered rides. Try your hand at archery and see if you’re a modern-day Robin Hood, or climb the castle tower and rescue the lovely damsel in distress.

I love volunteering for school events. It keeps me connected with my kids, and I truly enjoy the company of the other parent volunteers. But when we work on posters and flyers, cutting out the letters, gluing, pasting, cleaning up the scraps… I’m not gonna lie, it’s a lot of work, gets pretty messy, and yeah – it’s EXHAUSTING. One afternoon, after my hand cramped for the umpteenth time, I stepped away from the School Fair poster I had been working on.
While I was enjoying my “break,” I decided to check my email. The DIY gods were on my side or something, but my my sister-in-law happened to email me some info about a site called PosterMyWall! So I clicked on the link, and… OH EM GEE. I had found my poster-making BFF!
The site offered all these awesome templates, including a category for school templates. Winning! I ditched the paper version I was working on, and using the site’s online tools (we’re talking backgrounds, images, filters, etc.), I made a new poster in minutes!!!
I shared my new masterpiece with the committee I was currently working with, and we decided to order a test poster. Our 24×36″ poster shipped pretty quickly, and we loved it so much, we also ordered the digital download to upload to the school’s website. If you wanna see what other products PosterMyWall offers, check out this page: http://www.postermywall.com/index.php/g/classroom-posters

I started reviewing products as something fun to do on the side. I never thought it would be as addicting as it really is! WARNING!!!! Once you start you won’t be able to stop! ( I’m not kidding). One of the most important steps to becoming an active product reviewer is to have AMAZON PRIME. Most groups require you to have a prime account where you submit all your reviews. The easiest way to start out–if you’re new to all this– is on the Blue Ribbons Review Website.
This website offers many products at greatly discounted prices in exchange for an honest review on Amazon. The best part– no waiting for codes. You sign up with an email or Facebook and can get started reviewing right away. Once you complete the registration process all you do is go to the dashboard and click the product you are interested in, where it says “see details.” Make sure to pay attention to the type of review that is required (some are well-written, while others require photos or videos). Scroll down and click the green “send request” button. Almost instantly it will give you a one-time promotional code and a link to purchase the item on Amazon. Add the item to your cart and go to checkout. Paste your promo code into the promotional code/gift card box during checkout and hit “apply.” Finish the checkout process and Viola! You’ve purchased your first review item!
Typically, you need to wait at least 5 days after receiving the product to review it. The other great thing about starting out with Blue Ribbons is that when you do write your review it will automatically update to your account. So no messing with permalinks yet.
The products offered on Blue Ribbons range from cooking utensils to handmade instruments to baby items and jewelry. There are always so many products to choose from. In the beginning you can opt into only four products at a time. Once you have done six (if I remember right) successful reviews you can start reviewing more at once.
Here are just some examples of products offered on the website:
Blue Ribbons also has a Facebook page that offers more products, but you have to opt in and hope to be chosen for a code.
