One of my favorite things to do every year is go to the Michigan Renaissance Festival. I've been there twice so far and had a great time. We went there with about 30 Banana winners for the "Pig 'N Swig" event and it was a blast. There's nothing like beer and bacon to kick start a Sunday. 

If you are planning on heading out there this year, some of my favorites include the Ded Bob Show and the Washing Wenches. Outside of that, you can't go wrong with beer, wine, and soup in a bread bowl. Check out some of the behind-the-scenes footage and meet some of the characters here.
