I went to the Renaissance Faire this past Sunday with some friends. The weather was truly Chicago that day. Started off hot and humid in the low 90s. Eventually clouded up, rained, cleared up, and was around 75 degrees and very pleasant. But then I drove home (about 70 miles south) and it was still in the mid-80s and incredibly humid.
The reason we went on the hottest day of the summer was to see the drums and bagpipe band, Tartanic
Paula's friend Raychel brought her hoop
Faeries/nymphs/sprites/not sure. They only interact with children.
Like I said, the weather was interesting
the sun came out before the rain stopped
Death came calling ... but he just needed a place to sit and stay dry
