Go back in time in Dade City at this year's Renaissance Festival

From costumes and characters to food and fun, the Renaissance Festival has a lot going on in May.

The weekend event, which typically takes place in Tampa, has moved to Dade City this year.

The 16th Century European village is a hit every year for families with lots of entertainment and fun.

And this weekend, you could be eating a turkey leg while watching armored jousting, watching jesters slop around in mud, or watching performers spinning on human-sized hamster wheels.
