For my birthday gift, my sister Mallory decided to take me to one of our favorite seasonal places - King Richard's Faire in Carver, MA. We had visited for the first time one Sunday last year, and enjoyed ourselves so much that we went back one week later! Both Mallory and I scored some great T-shirts and jewelry, and even had a great meal. We couldn't wait to return.
My chowder boule was delicious! The chowder tasted homemade, and the boule they used was soft and fresh. I was impressed at how hot everything was, considering that everything is outside and there were quite a lot of hungry kings and queens waiting to be served.
After nearly being scared to death by a passing monster, Mallory and I started to plan ahead for our next visit to King Richard's Faire. We're going to order the chicken, fryes, and the King's Towering Chocolate Cake, which seems to be quite a hit with patrons. We also can't wait to revisit our favorite shops - The Silver Lady, The Remembrance Shoppe, and Uncommon Adornments. All in all, we had a great time and can't wait to go back. However, I definitely suggest bringing a lot of cash if you go with your family. Although there are ATMs available, only some of the merchants accept credit cards.
King Richard's Faire is open this year until October 21 from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Discount coupons are available on the Web Site, along with a list of merchants, games, food, and a map of the park. You'll definitely have a royal good time!
