[dear lord this is like the 4th year of actually posting one of these.... so I'm just copying the last years one and editing it =P]

Lords and Ladies....
It's that time again....

The Green's Annual Visit To The....

Michigan Renaissance Festival!!

Has been officially planned for......
Sunday, September 7th
[Wine, Romance and Song weekend]

People are meeting up at my house at 9/9:30
[The fair starts at 10am and it takes aprx. 1hr to get there]
Drivers are always welcome
[However you may not end up having to drive depending on how many people go etc!]

If Anyone Has To Be Home By A Certain Time PLEASE let us know!
So we can make accommodation's and make sure you will be home when you need to me, without making a driver have to leave against their will.
In general we should be home around 8/8:30 [the fair closes at 7]
Depending on how tired everyone gets, the weather, and how crowded it is
Pizza and Movies are usually held after at my house for those interested
I realize it's a Sunday, but it's always an option.
(Last year we were all too tired and all had school so it was a no go)

Please note that ticket prices have increased again this year.
Tickets are $18.95 at the gate for and adult
[$9.95 for children and $16.95 for seniors]
However! You can get tickets in advanced at a discounted price at participating
Krogers, Walgreen's or Wendy's, or on the Michigan Ren Fest's website with their Click n Print Tickets.
Click Here for more ticket information

Keep in mind that.......
You should bring Extra money for food, or if you plan on shopping!

Moving On!
We dress up, so you should too!!!
But it's not mandatory!
If you are having problems with a costume
let us know and I'm sure we can come up with something for you
[I've been going my whole life, and my parents even before that.
Trust me...we've picked up bits of pieces of costumes here and there]
See pictures below for ideas and more info on costumes

You really see people in anything at the Ren Fest
From jeans and t-shirts
to "gothy" black on black on black
To fairy wings, horns, belly dancing attire - and every other look imaginable.
Just be yourself and do what feels comfortable.
It's about having fun =)

Here are some pictures of people who have gone with us over the past few years

Emily and Steph [the two on the right] show a great example of how some clothes in your closet can be surprisingly "ren festy" when put together!

Let me know if you have anymore questions!
For more info and pictures - check out the Michigan Renaissance Official Website

I would prefer not to drive (I worry about my ADD when driving with other people are in the car, my brother has called me "grandma driver" when I pick him up from school haha) but I will be most happy to contribute gas money.

Rock on! I'm so very excited that you can finally come =)
my parents will be happy to see you too!
And don't worry... ALL my friends call me a grandma driver.
But I'd rather be a grandma driver, then putting all my friend's at risk, or getting speeding tickets all the time, so I don't mind. Plus I get awesome gas millage for having an SUV that way too =P

I'll letcha know if any details change
