Time of year permitting perhaps the most amazing thing to do while in Kenosha is the Bristol Renaissance Faire.

Tickets for this even run $19.95 for adults and $9.50 for children ages 5-12. If tickets are purchased online there is a $2 discount. There are many exciting parts of the renaissance faire one special feature that they have are Signature bricks. These bricks can be customized and are placed in an elegant brick wall. This would be a perfect even to write something special for that someone special in your life. This Renaissance Faire is not just prized for its brick wall but for its entertainment. The Faire has too many groups to list but consist of amazing feats of strength, juggling, musicians, and even a few magicians. Some of these acts are world renowned and travel during the off seasons making a living out of their age old craft. There are always those who get bored watching everyone else have the fun on stage the faire has a selection of games and rides. For a Small price guests can find themselves aiming a crossbow at a bale of hay, or throwing stars. If you are even more daring I would suggest taking a spin on the Hurl and Twirl then run straight into the life size Maze. (But take warning some have a hard time finding the end) The Bristol Renaissance Faire is a great place to take the family and teach them about history in a fun way that will leave a lasting impression on their life.
