The Florida Renaissance Festival is bringing thousands of people together at Quiet Waters Park. The event will take place over the next six weekends and includes a wide variety of entertainment venues and plenty of food and drink. There are jousting presentations, real combat activities and encampments that show people what life was really like in old Europe. The Renaissance Festival is a place where you can be a pirate, a pope, a prince, a queen or a peasant. Many people get dressed up as characters from medieval Europe.
