Wizards and faeries and elves! Oh my! Behold the mystical and magical creatures that lurk behind each corner, garden and Shoppe within the King’s realm during the Texas Renaissance Festival’s 1001 Dreams weekend, sponsored by Top Dog Halloween Madness.

Fantasies will come to life during this festival season’s second themed weekend, Saturday, October 13th and Sunday, October 14th, 2012. Become part of the enchanted celebrations by roaming through the Magic Garden, which offers six satisfying sanctuaries where patrons can rest, reflect or simply reminisce about their day. The Gypsy Guerilla Band will intrigue spectators, while various entertainers and characters are sure to amuse even the most adamant of non-believers.
