Michiana's Renaissance Festival, ready for rain or shine

Mishawaka's Kamm Island Park has been transformed into the Kingdom of Kamm. August 27 marks Michiana's 6th annual Renaissance Festival, and last for two days only.

There are four different themed areas inside the 7 1/2 acre Kingdom:  The Medieval Era, The Golden Age of Privacy, the Time of the Vikings, and a Fairytale Storyland.  

Each area has their own different shows, re-enactments, games and vendors for visitors to enjoy.

Jon Zook started the festival six years ago.  His favorite part is watching all of the children in attendance, pretend that they're princesses and knights.  This is the first year the festival will have jousting demonstrations.

And he's not worried about the rainy weather. The festival still will go on, rain or shine.  Zook said that last year's festival also faced heavy rains, and people still enjoyed themselves.

Doors open at 10 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday and close at 6 p.m. 

Ticket prices start at $7 for children and military enters free of charge.
