Details about the park:

– There are restrooms/changing rooms with showers adjacent to the beach and also showers located on the beach for rinsing off sand.
– Ice cream novelties are for sale at the beach itself (think ice cream Snickers bars), but you may want to save your money and get a yummy frozen treat from Boondocks Grill, which is adjacent to the beach. You can’t go wrong eating lunch there, either.

Don’t forget! Aug 25 Goth Takeover: Bristol Renaissance Faire (Bristol, WI)

~* This is a “goth takeover” so invite your friends! *~

Welcome one and all to the FOURTH annual goth takeover of the Bristol Pleasure Faire!

This event is taking place on Saturday, August 25th. The Faire opens at 10am and closes at 7pm. Feel free to come early, I will be waiting at the gates around 2pm for about twenty minutes to try and get a group together, however feel free to text or post on this event as you arrive so we can all meet up. (your network coverage may vary, I tend to have issues getting a signal)

Tickets at the gate are $25.95 and can also be purchased online, or at Walgreen’s which usually has them on sale for several dollars cheaper. If you find any online discount codes or sales, please post them here!

Finally, invite your friends, and use this page to make plans for carpools, meetups, and group photos. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends! Based on past experiences, goths show up throughout the day and often are too shy to come up and say hi to a group, many of us are socially awkward or anxious, so feel free to grab some alcohol and come be awkward with the rest of us.

You can find more information on the website: http://www.renfair.com/bristol/

Tips:

-Expect it to be as hot as satans butthole. Bring spf 666, perhaps a parasol, and dress accordingly. We may get lucky and have an overcast day, but prepare for the worst.

-Bring plenty of spending money as the ATM’s will charge a fee. Most of the regular venders take cards, but many still do not. The Faire does not allow outside food or drink.

-Have a look at the faire schedule: there are all kinds of plays, performers, bands, comedians and more happening so you may want to plan ahead if you’ve never been.

-There are two parking lots, one is $5, and a little further down the road is free parking, free parking requires a bit of a longer walk. The later in the day you arrive, the more likely there will be a long line of cars to get in, so be prepared to sit in your car for some time before getting in. (plan your toilet breaks accordingly)

-Getting a group of goths to stay together is a bit like herding cats, so feel free to get together in smaller groups, but don’t be afraid to socialize! The farie is fun, but this will be a great opportunity to make new friends, and meet people you’ve only talked to online.
