Elizabethan Times - Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire
Volume 28, 2013
Celebrating the Pennsylvania
Renaissance Faire's 33rd Anniversary!
The Pyrates Invade!
The year is 1588 and Mount Hope is once again welcoming Her Most Royal Majesty, Elizabeth Regina
Glorianna to Her favorite Shire! All is in readiness for Her Majesty as the village has prepared a wondrous
celebration in Her honor. Musicians, shopkeepers, jugglers, comedians, singers and villagers… all are in
readiness to greet the Queen.
But even as things in England are well, outside its borders
there is upheaval. In Ireland there is daily insurrection and
attacks. No ship or outpost is left untouched. Led by Red Hugh
O'Donnell the Irish Rebellion is growing by the minute.
England's Governor in Ireland, Sir Richard
Bingham captures Red Hugh during a battle and
brings him to England as a "gift" for the Queen.
The Queen is certainly pleased that the rebellion
has lost its leader.
Not everyone is pleased by Red Hugh's capture. The
Irish Pirate Queen, Grace O'Malley is on her way
to free him and bring him back to Ireland.
And nothing or no one will stand in her way.
Magical Merriment Parade – Join villagers, merchants and nobles as
we gather to escort Her Majesty in grand procession to the Human Chess Match.
Nippers are encouraged to come and lead the Queen in this parade guaranteed
to stop everyone in their tracks to watch as the
music makers, flags, floats and giant puppets
pass by. Come one, come all and experience
the fun of a Royal Parade! Parade will form at
3:40PM below Sir Jacob’s Garden.
