Mermaids Descend Upon the Scarborough Renaissance Festival in 2013

Huzzah!  In less than one week it will once again be time to hear that magical phrase “Throw Wide the Gates” as the 2013 season of Scarborough Fair commences, allowing me to be transported back into a 16th century paradise.  A world where I am not concerned with the hustle and bustle of every day life.  A few days a week in which my only concern is relaxing, spending time with my family and taking photos to share with you.

Bestowed upon us this season, from a land of enchantment, come mythical sea creatures.  Mermaid Lagoon will showcase these beautiful sirens singing and playing in their forest sanctuary.   You will find them hidden in Fern Gully just beyond Noobler The Tinker Gnome’s house in what was already a very entertaining area of Pecan Grove.

I was fortunate to be granted a sneak peak of these magnificent creatures from afar and can’t wait to return to the Mermaid Lagoon to hear their beautiful songs again.   Children will especially enjoy interacting with them and if polite and well behaved receive tokens of friendship from the mermaids.
