History meets entertainment at the Alabama Ren Faire

After 28 years, education is still the number one goal for the Florence, Alabama Renaissance Faire, but that doesn't keep it from being fun. “We keep it very light-hearted,” Faire chairman Billy Warren said. “If it ever quits being light and fun, then I’m out of here. Nothing about the Renaissance Faire ever keeps me up at night.”

The faire takes place each year in the fall and charges no admission fee. Life Editor Mari Williams of Flo-Ala visited and spoke with participants.
