Title: 2011 Season
Post by: trevor ylisaari on July 15, 2011, 08:55:33 PM
Well, since none of the other regulars have started a thread, I guess I will.

First, a bit of warning to those coming from afar, and haven't heard yet.
Things seem a bit leaner this year.
We lost a few vendors. Got some new ones, but not as many as we lost this time.
Lost Sky Chairs, the Human Powered Rides, the games in Old World, Celestial Circus, Pirate Booth, and the wooden instrument people. (off the top of my head)
Also, the camel wasn't there opening weekend, but that isn't anything new. I think they miss opening weekend just about every year.
Pipers were there, but only had a few games going. Archery, Throwing, and Bops.

So, those with children, might have a bit of trouble keeping them occupied unless things change soon.

There also is no Mud Show this season either.
Jousters are the same as the past few years.
Pub sing is still at the Drift, and kind of dead.
And the hours this season are 11-8.
And still no alcohol sales.

Now that all that is out of the way.
Still lots of fun to be had by those willing to find it.
We had a great time at opening weekend.
And I am slowly clearing my backlog of pics from it.

Thanks, Trevor! Boss Wench is also gone. They had the big booth down the lane from Princessories and Catskill Moccasins, next to Broon's old stage (having a brainfart, the name escapes me).

It's been kind of rough for the vendors because the Trustees are up to their old tricks. They're nothing if not consistent.  ::)

There is still fun to be had, opening weekend was a blast! Come out and support the faire!

Yeah. I forgot about Boss Wench
There is a basket place in there now though.

(and the name of the stage is the Sherwood Stage)
