Rennaissance Festival

Another wonderful Renaissance Festival for the kids! Big thanks to Janousz & Rowina and their 2015 Renaissance Crew! The Opening Ceremony kept the stage rockin’ and tears rollin’. The gift of a Torres Strait Islander Feasting Ceremony prepared by Uncle Phil and the kids for the festival community filled our hearts and bellies. Thank-you kids! You rock! So long, see you all again next time….
