Dinard

Hello Everyone,

Although on Sunday I told you about my day trips, there is one particular day trip that was very memorable for me. We were supposed to be looking for a market to buy some groceries from, and instead we found the annual FĂȘte des Ramparts in Dinard. This is essentially a Renaissance Fair, so everybody was dressed up in medieval garb, along with a tournament and stalls selling medieval produce. I am not often under dressed, but on that day I was. Everyone got involved and it was lovely to see, it isn't something that really happens in Britain.

There's a lot of effort put into this festival
Wish I had taken them up on their offer!
Fancy some furs? Or a belt buckle? There was pretty much everything on sale
No medieval festival is complete without a jester
The streets were lined with these flags, all colours of the rainbow
A blurry picture of my dad blending in with the locals!
The musicians played some medieval music to help set the mood
There were lots of street performers
I have never wanted to buy a sword/bow and arrow so much ever!
These guys put so much effort into their costumes!
This is so cute! (I'm sorry about the blurriness) 
This was the security detail!
