I loved every thing about the event. We had so much fun and I got a lot of great pictures. I went a couple years ago. I am going to bring my nephew to the next event. I took them to one in spring field, Missouri and I was so disappointed. it was nothing like this event

What an event! I'm a photographer that loves to shoot almost anything, but this event was sooooo photographer friendly I was really surprised. I've done other events like this but yours was over the top. From the people at the parking lot to those serving food and then the people of the area that were in dress of the period. You couldn't have been more friendly. Oh, did I mention the re-enactors? Some of these folks were the same as at Rentiesville but because of the mood you've created within the community it's much better atmosphere. The only suggestion is that you put up signs at the Turnpike exit and then down at the junction of hwy 51 and the road that comes from the turnpike. Google directed us down the road to an empty field. Again, wonderful event!
