Shakespeare's England comes to life with the return of the Renaissance Faire this weekend. The San Jose Renaissance Faire approaches its third year in running, designed to bring a better alternative for the gents and ladies of the South Bay. This year the faire brings three stages of storytelling, staged battles, music, and dancing. Merchants show off their wares - jewelry, woodcrafts, artwork, ceramics, clothing, historic weapons and leather goods. This will be the one weekend to bust out the peasant tops, eat, drink, and be in merriment.
