Gulf Coast Renaissance Fair 2011: what to see

There are an abundance of things to see at the fair. It is very ornate if you look closely. Sometimes the mix of fair people and fair patrons makes it confusing. It would be fun to see a fair where everyone is in costume.

There were many booths selling various items. Food, clothing, jewelry. And booths that seemed to cater to the needs of next year's fair people...costumes, swords, crowns. All your Renaissance needs.

The jousting was rather interesting, given the fact that the 'track' they had to joust on was not that long. In my opinion. And one of the jousters was a female. She is on the horse with the blue drape and red heart. But, alas, she lost. I really love the motion in the following images...the flowing manes of the horses. It really shows that they did get some speed even on this small arena.
