If you are within driving distance of the Chicago/Milwaukee area, please join Big John, my wife Becky N, and me at the Bristol, WI Renaissance Faire on Saturday, August 5, 2006!
No where else will you find so many interesting people to photograph. This event is a people-photographer's dream! The performers at the faire, along with many of the guests, will be in lavish costumes from years-gone-by. These people are accustomed to being photographed, and there will be many photographers there.
This is wholesome family fun where people of all ages play dress-up and have a blast. There is great food and drink, and plenty to see and do. Even a special area for the kids with dozens of rides & games!
Here are the pertinent details:
Date: Saturday, August 5th, 2006. (rain date - August 19th) The park opens at 10:00 am and closes at 7:00 pm.
Location: The Bristol Faire is Literally right on the Illinois-Wisconsin State line, just off I-94. Go herefor directions & mapquest.
Cost: Gate price is $18.95/adult, $9.50/child 5-12, free for children under 5.
You can save 16% if you get your tickets online here($15.95/adult, $8.00/child). You'll also need money for food, beer, cigars, souveniers, and kids' rides & games. They do not allow food & beverages to be carried in. All of the shows at the faire are free, but the performers will have their hats out afterward.
What to bring: Your camera, silly! With extra batteries and all your CF cards, you'll need them!
What to wear: Whatever is comfortable. Good shoes for walking. Guys in kilts will fit right in! And I think it would be really great if we all wore an official POTN cap or shirt, which can be purchased here!
If you're planning to attend: Please PM me with your real name and cell phone number (and I'll give you mine) so we can better communicate and arrange for POTN group meetings at the faire.
More info: Go to the Bristol Faire website! It's packed with information!
