King Richard’s Faire
Entertainment, exciting rides and skilled games abound on the King Richard�s Faire�s enchanted 80-acre site. Hundreds of talented entertainers perform non-stop throughout the day. Watch King�s mounted knight�s battle on horseback, and laugh as bawdy beggars compete in mud. Strolling performers will engage you all day long as you frolic in our forest and try your skill at our Gaming Glen. Visit any of our eight vivid stages and be enthralled by acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, minstrels, dancers, fire eaters, puppeteers and even exotic tigers. Witness the rare Liger, beautiful white lion and cute tiger cubs.
but people call me Jeff Foliage.
I have several pages that I write blogs for such as: http://www.4cornersnewengland.com/
My most popular blog is for Leaf peepers: Jeff Foliage.com.
I live in Salem, Massachusetts and work as a blogger and Travel Photographer. I'm also the founder of the New England Photography Guild.
Feel free to visit me on my blogs and see what life in New England is like.
I started with Yankee Magazine as their first blogger on everything fall foliage. Now I blog on my own blog on my favorite subject, telling leaf peepers where the fall foliage is showing up in New England and helping them (to some extent) plan their fall foliage vacations.
