Road trips: Joust keep on driving to the Renaissance Festival

And for those who prefer to enjoy their oversized drumsticks in the company of those wearing body armor and fur and horn-accented headwear, just keep on trucking to Shakopee, Minn.

The annual Minnesota Renaissance Festival is at 12364 Chestnut Blvd. in Shakopee and runs Saturdays and Sundays through Sept. 26.

Expect to see crafts, large mugs o’ beer and period-specific theatrics and sport (see also: jousting).

Road Trips, compiled by News Tribune staff, are listings of cool events that are worth a short drive.
