The Colorado Renaissance Festival in Larkspur is safe from wildfires and will be open with free admission for children 12 and younger this weekend only.
We'll be there photographing our favorite costumes and chowing down on our latest obsession, turkey legs. Festival-goers can enjoy a 16th century marketplace with over 200 artisans, food and drink "fit for a king," ten stages of continuous entertainment and a new endangered cat show. In celebration of Children's Weekend, the festival has special activities planned for the little ones, including a Prince, Princess and Pirate party.
