Maryland Renaissance Festival

I wander enchanted woods
And throw some axes

Throwing axes at the Maryland Renaissance Festival
Written by Captain Hops.

References: I always love going to the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Is there nothing you can’t do? Who cares if I throw an ax like a girl. I still hit the bulls eye and won a magic medallion. No really… it’s magic.
