Thanks for posting these! We're only about two hours from Savannah, but it's far enough away that I never think to check what's going on up there!! If Ren Faire stuff is your thing, the church we used to go to in Brunswick is having a sort of Ren Faire around Halloween.

I think we need to move to Savannah! Medieval Festival, Dragon boat races and discovery walks in the forest all sound like fabulous fun!
