Fun at Colorado Renaissance Festival

*Disclosure: The Colorado Renaissance Festival provided me with free tickets. These are my opinions and experiences only yours may differ.*

I have wanted to go to the Colorado Renaissance Festival since I was a kid. I was so happy to get to go this year with my little family. It only took us 25-30 minutes to get there and we left early to be sure to get parking. From the opening of the castle to the time we left I had a blast. My husband and daughter really enjoyed themselves as well.

My husband got pics taken where ever he could with anyone in costume too. As you can see above he enjoyed himself a huge turkey leg. We had lunch and were pretty impressed with the prices. They were fairly priced when it came to food and drinks. Of course we had to get a few souvenirs as well. Christine got a hat and I got a few t-shirts. 

There was a lot of entertainment and sights to see as well. There were a few shows we were able to see that I really enjoyed. Above is the stage to one of the shows but we actually missed it. We did get to see the Kamikaze Fireflys and Puke and Snot. Both were really good but Christine got bored. She did however really enjoy the children's realm. There she got to ride a cow and pet goats and sheep. There were also lots of rides for the little ones to enjoy. Elephant and camel rides were available too!

You still have time to go have fun int he past with your family. The festival will run July 26-27 and the last weekend is August 2 and 3. It is open 10 am to 6 pm rain or shine and there is fee parking. Get there early to get a close spot. Tickets cost $19.95 for ages 12+ at the gate but you can go to King Soopers for discount ones.  Children 5-12 are $9 at the gate. You can also use a coupon and get free kids admission. 
The address to the festival is: 650 W. Perry Park Ave. Larkspur, CO 80118 

We already have plans to go next year and hope you will get to go this year!!
