This event has become one of my favorites for photographing people. The Michigan Renaissance Festival is a great time and one that provides the opportunity to experience what it may have been like to live during the 16th century. With themed weekends that present events such as Tattoo competition, Knights on Bikes, Beard competition and more. One of the greatest things about this festival is the visitor participation in regards to the period costumes worn. It really is quite remarkable how many people attend the festival in dress.
Be sure to check out the 2nd photo in gallery below. I am pretty sure Willie Nelson was in attendance!
