HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WBTV) - If you're weekend plans include some sort of escape from reality, then the Carolina Renaissance Festival is a good place to start.
From the moment you cross into the medieval themed gates, you enter a world where cell phones don't matter.
"Everybody has an opportunity when they come to this village to escape their modern day concerns and stresses and bills and politics and everything that's in the news today. You come out here for a day of merriment and it just all melts away," said Marketing Director Matt Siegel.
The festival hosts all sorts of experiences from the 17th century. From giant turkey legs to dancing minstrels to authentic attire. The whole experience costs $20 for adults at the gate and $9 for children.
