King Richard's Faire 2013
I took the family to visit King Richard's Faire in Carver, MA. This was our second visit to the faire. It was their second weekend of the 2013 season and boy were they hopping. We arrived a little later than I wanted (10:30am gates open) we just missed the fun introduction they do before opening the gate. That familiar feeling of being transported into the enchantment of this 80 acre site was immediately upon us.
The Village of Carvershire is bustling with excitement as it celebrates its 32nd Season with new performers, entertainers and artisans!
*New this fall are the fabulous acrobatic and juggling act “Vicious & Delicious”; The hilarious comedy antics and stunts of Wacky Chad (Sept. 21 & 22 Only!)
Be sure to visit their eight stages to see acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, minstrels, dancers, fire eaters, puppeteers and exotic tigers. The girl's favorite performance is the Tiger Stage where they were able to see the rare liger, beautiful white lion and cute tiger cubs. The Royal Zoo offers a wide selection of exotic animals every season.
We brought our two princesses to the Princess Academy show and they both loved it. There are a variety of rides, games and shops around the Kid Cove that kept us busy.
Of course you won't want to miss the King’s mounted knights battle on horseback. Be sure to check the day's schedule for the event times. The joust is a great way to end your visit to King Richard's Faire.
For some family friendly tips be sure to revisit my review from last year.
New tips that I am adding this year:
- No pets allowed
- Food is purchased with tickets- be sure to find a ticket booth and buy your tickets (tickets cost $1 each and are sold in $5 lots only), then go to the food stand and make your selections.
