ADVICE FOR TAKING YOUNG CHILDREN TO FAIRES v 1.0

The following was some advice given by a vetern faire participant to a question about how to deal with young girl at a faire. The advice is sage enough to extend to any small child at any renaissance event.

I've been going to MDRF since my youngest was in utero, with a four year old to hold onto. I've got photos of the two in the pillory, standing under a sign declaring that unattended children would be sold as slaves, trying to dance like the Scottish Rogues, dressed as Robin Hood and Will Scarlet (red turtle neck and red corduroys, and home made cloak, brown and green cords and turtleneck, homemade cloak, and purchased hats@$5 ea, wooden swords), bowing over the queen's hand and getting knighted for his courtesy, and rolling around in the mud of the petting zoo, kissing the d--pig. There is nothing in the world more fun than watching a kid discover that sometimes stories do come true. Have a blast!
