With the exception of one or two I had never seen any of the performers they had, either. We caught a juggling show early, and Chrissy was pulled onstage!
Chrissy also treated me to a birthday present - she bought herself the cute owl and me the cat that you see in the pictures below. They are from Midsummer Knight's Dream and are puppets - there is a wire that runs down through a corset or shirt that controls their heads (you can see Chrissy's right hand holding it). Kids were fascinated by them - little girls kept wanting to come up and pet my cat. This is something I would have never bought my self, and I love it!
It was a great day, but boy were we exhausted afterwards - we watched a little bit of a movie and called it a very early night. Considering we had been up past 2am the two night prior and I'm not used to doing that often anymore, it doesn't surprise me at all.
It's been my goal to try and hit one new faire or festival every year and I've been lucky enough to achieve this multiple times this year so far. A big thank you to Chrissy and Eric for helping to make it happen! It also sounds like plans are in the works for Chrissy to come up my way in September to hit MDRF. I hope that happens!
