The Bay Area Ren Fest (Website)
For the last 38 years, His Majesty the King of Fittleworth has opened the gates of his kingdom to Tampa Bay area residents for 6-7 weeks in February and March. Kelly visited often as a child, and enjoyed her favorite show, Emrys Fleet, the Rat Catcher! (Photos below!) Now an adult (technically), Kelly is happy to return to Fittleworth every weekend before the kingdom disappears back into the mist. Kelly's favorite show is still the Rat Extravaganza, even though she practically knows the show by heart! A newcomer this year is Ash and his Knight Wings falconry show, which has become Srdjan's favorite show. So every Saturday morning, or afternoon depending on how late of a night Friday was, Srdjan dons his armor, Kelly squeezes into her corset, and the two of them head out for two days of turkey legs, Irish nachos, and especially cider!
Below you will find photos of the residents, visitors, and performers in Fittleworth. Click any of the thumbnails for a larger view of the image. More photos will be added weekly until the end of the festival in late March.
There are also links to the performers' pages, please check them out! And buy the Emrys Fleet Rat Extravaganza DVD!
