The Arizona Renaissance Festival is back in full swing before the cool temperatures give way, and attendees happily flocked to it over the weekend. The event runs every weekend until March 31st, at its location just outside of Apache Junction.

Attendees have a variety of things to see and do at the festival, including activities for kids. Over the weekend, folks attended live comedy, music, and other entertainment acts across the series of stages. Food purveyors were in full force, offering everything from turkey legs to chocolate and everything in between. Shops were lined with visitors, rides were packed, and there was hardly a calm area to be found on the festival grounds.

As the weather continues to hold out with cooler temperatures, only a few weekends are left to attend the event. Tickets can be purchased online at $27 per an adult and $17 for children. Passes may also be purchased at the door.
