An esthetician from Clarion came dressed as a mushroom. A finance manager from Canonsburg wore a mask with horns. A high school teacher from Brookline was a Viking and a pediatric dental assistant from Stoystown was a witch.
At the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival, it’s difficult to distinguish the performers from the paying public. Patrons to the popular event say that’s all part of the fun.
Described as a “16th Century Medieval Amusement Park,” the festival features stage shows, music performers, artisans, games of skill, rides, jousting shows and food — lots of food.
These are just some of the faces of the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival.
