My husband and I get season passes to the (Tampa) Bay Area Renaissance Festival every year, and go every Saturday and Sunday while it’s in town. While we absolutely love it, we’re glad it only lasts 7 weeks, since that’s 7 weekends that we get out of bed even earlier than we do during the week! Generally, Saturdays are “full costume days” and Sundays are “half costume or plainclothes” days, since both of our costumes are heavy and hot. Tampa gets in the mid- to high-90s in February and March, and the humidity and dust make the days oppressively hot and dirty.
