When is the last time you went to see a really good joust?

That's what I thought. I don't know that I have ever been to a really good joust, although the kids in the neighborhood doing that on stick horses was pretty cool.

But this weekend, no kids on stick horses, or cardboard swords and shields. No. This one is as real as you can get and still have fun.

The Grand Junction Renaissance Faire comes to Watson Island Park this weekend, April 21 and 22. And fun is at the center of it all. Just look at everything they have!

Entertainment provided by Celtica Pipes Rock, which includes bagpipes as well as drums and electric guitar! Or roam the grounds and find the artistry of a bygone era. And food. Let's not forget turkey legs the size of your arm!

There is so much fun to be had at this year's Faire. Comedy, arts and crafts, games, music, food and more fun than you ever thought you could have being in the 1600's.

If you do nothing else this spring, make your plans to be at the GJ Reniassance Faire this weekend. Make memories that will never fade!
