Renaissance Pleasure Faire Reunion at Paramount Ranch March 22, 2015
 
 
 
Who remembers the Renaissance Pleasure Faire?  Back in 1966, one of the countries original, simulating the life and times in England during the reign of Elizabeth, was held in Paramount Ranch in
Agoura.
 
 
Kind of like a Medieval Times meets Woodstock, the faire attracted families and hippies alike. I remember my parents taking me to the fair to see the cast of characters dressed like Vikings, pirates, kings and queens, centaurs and drunkards.  There was the macabe gallows scene and the drench-a-wrench, to magic acts, to a jousting event.  The patrons as well as the players were dressed in their bohemian best.
 
 
I remember clear as day buying half of a lemon slurped through a peppermint straw.  That was almost 50 years ago.
 
 
Yesterday, some of the original cast of players met at Paramount ranch for some nostalgic revelry.

Add me to the Contact List for your next one. Even if this doesn't become an annual festival, I hope it can be revived periodically. Given enough advance notice, and wider publicity, I know you would have a bigger turnout.
