The first act I ever saw at a Ren Fest nearly 20 years ago was Barely Balanced. A fire breathing, juggling, acrobatic act. It was great to see them and how far their show has come. It was even better that they walked right up to me to say hi. Considering the hundreds of thousands of folks they have entertained over the years it's hard to believe they remember a fan who only can catch up to them every few years.

They also remembered me. I think most people who come to these events think they are watching TV. I find everyone at these events extremely approachable. If you don't ask stupid questions and take a true interest in their art, you can have a great conversation, wonderful memories, and friends across the country.
Although the Hoggetowne faire does not have the loud bands and cannon fire I've become accustomed to, it still was too big to see all of in one day. Also a lot of the people I've come to know whether they be Performers, vendors, or patrons were there to great me.
