Mother’s Day 2015

Mother’s Day 2015:

How did YOU spend Mother’s Day? It has become almost a tradition for my Mother and my Daughter to spend the day at OKRF on Mother’s Day. Three generations together at Fair. A great time enjoyed by all.

Happy Mother's Day!
Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day at the Castle has it’s favorites….there are always “must see” acts. While we enjoy OKRF, we do have our favorites. The Jolly Rogers, The Brothers Dimm (also known as the Mud Men), Karma Dogma Show, and usually the birds of Prey show…however we missed that one. Royal Gauntlet used to do the show and now it is Knight Wing. We visited the Italian quarter and saw Tribal Circus. We tried Wulgamut but the echo inside the cave made it too loud to enjoy so we weren’t able to stay long. This doesn’t affect everyone and they are worth the listen…if the cave gets to you then catch them at pub-sing at the crown inn towards the end of the day.

If you got the chance to spend the day with your Mom…then you had a very special day indeed. IF you did not, don’t think you missed out. Make a date and spend the day with her any day! Mother’s day can be any day regardless of your calendar. Mothers are special and any day is a great day to spend with MOM. ❤

Happy Mother’s Day to ALL the Moms out there…and God Bless each and every one of YOU!

Castleton Realm – OKRF 2015

Welcome to a long over due post and update from your local Broken Arrow Photographer, Misha. OKRF is in full swing and I had the chance to attend on opening day.

What is OKRF? the OKlahoma Renaissance Fair….and what can you see and do there?

Dragon's Eye....visit B.A.G.S. in the Pirate Cove.

Step into another realm…filled with pirates, fae, and royalty. A joust. A mermaid grotto. Wine. Wenches. Kings. and Queens. Are you curious yet?

Oh and I did mention Pirates right? well what would the other realms be without rebels and rogues to make the scenery interesting and entertaining….

You do remember this is the realm of Castleton, right?

Visit B.A.G.S. across from the Pirate stage.

Walk past the pirate stage and BAGS shop into the realm of faeires and mermaids and make believe. You may even see Peter Pan and Wendy. (think “other realm”…it does require some mischief and a little imagination but I think you can manage those)…

Hear the Sirens’ songs …many a ship has sank due to the siren song….but I think the pirate stage will interest you once you listen…”Sirena” (pictured left) will be taking 2016 off so see them this year at OKRF while you can!

opening day, last joust.... Ye Knights of Ole.

Oh and do NOT forget the Knights of Ole…for a joust is held at castleton and what passersby doesn’t want to see the champion of the day?

What do you think of Castelton and the 20th annual Opening Day of OKRF?

Check back for more! It is my goal to visit castleton once each weekend throughout it’s 20th run. Posted here will be the sights I see….so YOU can enjoy them too! Maybe I’ll even see YOU there. 😀
