Renaissance Festival comes to life

Posted

The Colorado Renaissance Festival in Larkspur opened its doors for the second weekend this summer last weekend. The festival, inspired by the 16th Century, boasts a village of permanent structures that come to life with hundreds of actors over the summer. The actors, portraying “merrymakers” living and working in the village, stay in character as they interact with guests of the festival.

Shows and various acts take over seven stages throughout the day, entertaining large crowds. Eventgoers also line up for elephant rides, enjoy jousting competitions, small rides and numerous other activities. Many people who attend carefully craft on-theme costumes to wear during their visit.

On June 23, Gabie Chamness, of Westminster, wore a green, leafy ensemble complete with a staff of greenery. Chamness said she's a regular at the festival and this year wore a costume inspired by her love of nature.

“I come every year that I can,” she said. “I try to come every weekend.”

The festival is held at 650 W. Perry Park Ave. and runs through Aug. 5. For more information, go to coloradorenaissance.com
