KC RenFest: A Medieval Good Time

Having lived in Kansas City for decades, I’m no stranger to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. In fact the very first year I went in grade school, I begged my mom to make me a Renaissance princess dress for Halloween so I’d have a reason to wear my dried flower hair garland again.

So when the marketing coordinator for RenFest (as it is locally known) reached out to me to offer me free passes to cover the faire, I shouted “Huzzah!” and agreed. Read on to hear about this year’s adventure.

2017 Solar Eclipse: A Total(ity) Recap from Missouri

Since I had to work the day of the 2017 Solar Eclipse, I asked Jackie Beucher, Vice President of the Astronomical Society of Kansas City, to do a recap of the celestial event. As Chair of the 2017 Eclipse Committee for ASKC and self-proclaimed “eclipse chaser” (10 and counting!), I knew she would have the inside scoop from her front-row seat!
