The Michigan Renaissance Festival runs on the weekends through September 29, 2013 at 12600 Dixie Highway, Holly, Michigan and pirate talkers are more than welcome.  If you have never attended a renaissance festival you are in for a treat and maybe a shock.  The festival grounds seem to go on forever.

Music lovers are in for a treat with over ten stages and other venues where various musicians and other performers keep the hordes (last Saturday alone over 20,000 passed through the gates) of attendees entertained with music, merriment, and dance.

Just inside at the Green Grove Stage the mermaid musical maidens of “Sirenadanced, drummed, and dazzled with their beauty and songs.
