Lake Superior Ren Faire
« on: May 17, 08, 02:31:57 pm CDT »

My own home faire.  It originally was the Upper Great Lakes Ren Faire then it went on hiatus for a couple years.  We started it up agin last year and this year we have moved ahead a month earlier to avoid all the other July festivals up here.  Turnout was pretty decent last year and the weather was nice for a change.  If you in the mood for an early faire and you can afford the gas to get up here go for it. Here's the link

*snerf*

As we told the people who drove up for our wedding in Bessemer - "Go North.  Turn Left.  When you get out to the end of the earth - go a few more miles."

I'm going to miss the farie this year, but I will be home for the 4th.

The only thing thats a major concern is that they have the road to Norrie park all ripped up.  Its going to be fun trying to get a route planned out this year.  Only thing new up hereis the Super Walmart finally opened by the Gogebic Country Club and the Walgreens is almost finished.  It where KFC used to be.  Still the boody end of the earth though.  Thank God that Old World Ren faire starts tomorrow up by Duluth.

Almost forgot the big news.  Cap Jack Sparrow  was up at Little Bohemia by Mercer, Wi filming the new Dillerger movie "Pubic Enenmies" My brother in law managed to get a part as the bartender and snagged one of the Tommy Gun shells that Mr. Depp fired off and gave it to me so I would have something to add to my movie prop collection.   Turns out there's all kinds of movie people who have places up here.

Damm i have to so watch my spelling.   :o One bottle of finnigans too many tonight.  Dillinger movie title should have been Public Enemies.  Were the hell are the edit buttons when you need them?  Oh well that will probably be the title of the porn version that will come out later.

Well, another faire over and done with.  I haven't heard wether there was a profit or not but it appears they are making plans for next year so there must have been.  Faire had some good and bad points this year.  We had a couple of acts bow out at the last minute but we did manage to get the Duelists. Ren magazine screwd p the ddates tow months in a row and it was too late to change it.  Need to get rid of a few flea market sellers (comic books and stuffed animals at a ren faire?) and get more ren merchants.  The weather held out pretty well with only a small amount of rain but it was enough to drive most of the crowd backout the gate.  We had a bit of wind that knocked the main tent down but it was back up in about ten minutes.  There a a couple of other things that need improvment such as road signs and music and the need for a beer tent.  But for the little bit that I could pry myself away from the wife and granddaughter (her 1st birthday was at faire) it was still alot of fun.  Soory Maggie-no Johnny Depp this year.  Not even a Cap'n Jack wanna be.

And around Torch Lake, and between Charlevoix and Petosky...

Ren faire site has been updated.  Some new acts and some old.  The road they were working onlastyear is finished.  Too bad the new surface only goes halfway to the park.  But hey we got Wolfgemut this year!  Twig (Olde World Renfaire-by Duluth, MN) has jousting this year and since their site is a bit smaller than ours I'm hoping this will be a good year and we can afford them some time in the future.
