We love you, Scarborough Renaissance Festival. We love your jovial mood, your festive fashion, your adopted vocal patterns, your lack of irony, and your don't give a horse's turd attitude. Recently we sent out a photographer to snap you lovely people in all your finery, then I sat around wanting to be friends with all of you. Here's a quick round-up of the people whose company would be worth the $22 cost of admission to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
