This upcoming Labor Day weekend heralds the start of the long-standing Ohio Renaissance Festival, which brings together hundreds of actors and skilled artisans in a re-created 16th-century English village. The festival is held in Harveysburg near Cincinnati.
You will see dancers, jugglers, storytellers and a multitude of costumed performers in nearly 100 shows daily. Check out the glassblowing, blacksmithing, stone carving and weaving. Munch on a giant turkey leg, and drink a hearty ale.
Test your skills in the gaming area or climb the 25-foot Castle Tower, then visit the Tower of London Dungeon of Doom.
