Renaissance Festival

Quiet Waters Skate Park 401 S. Powerline Road Deerfield Beach, FL 33442. As renaissance festivals have risen in popularity, they have long since given up any pretension at historical accuracy — if they ever did strive for such. Ren fests have instead become an amalgam of historical periods, fantasy genres, and cultural subsets all coalescing in a mead-drenched bacchanalia of revelry and mud shows. ALL PHOTOS BY ANTHONY CAVE
