Once upon a time, during the 14th century to the 17th century, was the Renaissance period. The Renaissance represented coming out of the dark of the Middle Ages. The Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo Park will be held Aug. 1 to Sept. 27

(renfair.com/NY). The Renaissance Faire is really fun. You get to dress up in an old-time costume or as a mythical creature. There are rides and shows including joust performances and an appearance from Queen Elizabeth I. There are also many different shops, too. Some of them sell costumes or instruments, or have face painting. You can even get food and drinks. If you go, I hope you have fun.
