Visitors are kept in motion with five stages that feature plays, music, dance, comedy and juggling in a festive atmosphere. What's cool about the event is the people who attend. They go to shops where period costumes are rented, paying up to several hundred dollars to outfit the family for the occasion. It's not just an event, it's truly a passion. And if you think children don't dig it, just take them some time. Most kids will find the canon fire, bubble fest, tug-of-war games, horse shows, food, and fun is all they need to spend a memorable time with mom and dad, or grandma and grandpa.

 

Wandering minstrels, archery competitions,  jousting of the Imperial Knights and their amazing trained horses and a variety of strolling musical acts even allow guests to march along and participate. In addition to the the entertainment factor, traditional school of arts and crafts for children of all ages. demonstrations of glass blowers, soap makers, potters, fine swords purveyors, jewelry makers, leather crafters, period clothing manufacturers and  European merchants sell beautifully crafted wares.

 

In addition to all the stuff to keep you entertained, there are some great foods that don't cost an arm and a leg. Bratwurst, plates, salads, kids foods, soft drinks, beer and lots of sweet treats will keep the kiddies and adults on a sugar high throughout the event.

Where to stay: It's OK to rough it for the festival event, or for a road trip, but we like creature comforts and find them at Ayres Inn Corona East, where the hotel offers European, Old World charm in a nice atmosphere. Families may want to consider staying at the Residence Inn by Marriott where you can get a two-room suite to accommodate the entire clan.
