  • Harvest Huzzah (9/23-9/24)
  • Festival Friday (9/29) & Sweet Endings (9/30-10/1)


We have been attending the Renaissance Festival for over 20 years and they are always adding new foods, vendors, shows and attractions to the event. Some of the newer popular event attractions are Feast of Fantasy, Renaissance Romance, King's Happy Hour, Pub Crawl, Once Upon a Tea Time, Pig 'N Swig (gourmet bacon and beer tasting - this was a fun event!) and even a special Ladies Shopping Day.


The ever popular Masquerade Ball (21 and Older) - Details here (this sells out too so book your tickets now if interested).

The galaxy has never looked so good!


Delivering the ultimate in-home experience is the Ultimate Cinematic Universe Edition (which includes a collectible poster while supplies last) comes packaged to include a 4K Ultra HD version of the film, a Blu-ray, a Digital Copy and more than 80-minutes of exclusive, never-before-seen bonus materials.

Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, the film’s storyline continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians (Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket) must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.

Check out the movie trailer below:



Our Thoughts:

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, you are guaranteed to laugh right off the bat once the opening scene finishes - the character Drax steals the show in the way of humor this time around with Groot and Rocket providing comic relief as well. I love seeing how these characters have grown into a family in this sequel. This movie will also give you the feels and possibly cause you to shed a few tears more than once. As you can see in the trailer, we finally find out who Peter's father is and how his parents came together, but also be sure to keep an eye out for other familiar faces popping up in the movie! The movie carries a PG-13 rating which is very accurate because there is a lot more cursing in this movie than the original and a few sexual references. I cannot stress this enough BUT please continuing watching until all the credits roll through. Marvel fans always know there are end credit scenes and there are FIVE of them in this movie. One of the scenes made me look at my daughter with a "mom look" because I swear it's something I say to her repeatedly....you will love the scenes at the end!

Our Thoughts:

This is a beautiful love story based on communication rather than just attraction. For those who enjoy teen romances with deeper messages about risk, love, and loss, this is an endearing pick. My husband, daughter and I enjoyed it.....have the Kleenex handy!

“The featured product was provided free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% the opinion of the Coupon Savvy Sarah family. Please note that your experiences with products featured here may vary from ours. This post may contain affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.”


King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is the latest attempt at revitalizing the King Arthur story. Warner Bros has brought audiences a new take on the classic legend with an action-adventure film from acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes). The film is from executive producers David Dobkin (R.I.P.D.), Jeff Kleeman (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), and Bruce Berman (The Matrix). It is rated PG-13 with a run-time of 115 minutes and is available at major retailers nationwide in addition to Amazon.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Trailer:



DVD Synopsis:

Arthur was a wild young man who ran amok through the forests surrounding Londonium. Throughout his entire life, he had no idea that he was from a royal family that had been betrayed by their subjects. When he was still very young, Arthur drew the sword Excalibur from a stone and his royal heritage was revealed to him. But now he must find a way to dethrone the people who had killed his family and take back the crown that is rightfully his. With the help of a mysterious woman named Guinevere and her followers, Arthur puts together a band of knights to try and recapture the crown.


Our Thoughts:

King Arthur is a fast paced, action packed, visually stimulating movie with an incredible cast. Do not listen to the critics on this one - if you are a fan of Ritchie's Sherlock movies like we are.....then you will NOT be disappointed. You'll love this movie.
