Heather White is a volunteer for Boster Castle and the Central Missouri Renaissance Fair.
The adventuresome time machine is sputtering again as Boster Castle holds the 8th annual Central Missouri Renaissance Fair on Saturday, Sept. 14, and Sunday, Sept. 15. Clanging swords, singing pirates and laughing children resound all around you as the smell of turkey legs, forging iron, fresh leather, candles and other aromatic hand-crafted goods, escort your senses through a medieval storybook town!
Escape this techno world to a simpler time of live entertainment, feasting, games, costumed characters and comedy shows.
Shop for wonderful arts and crafts. Test your manhood or "boyhood" in period games. Cheer for dashing knights and join the fun with Pirates Inc.
Boster Castle's fairgrounds opens for the renaissance fair at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday and closes both days at 6 p.m. Only 15 minutes from Columbia, the castle is located right next to Battle Creek Paintball at 4274 County Road 220, Kingdom City. For more information, go to centralmorenfest.com.
