Renaissance Faire Supports Haiku’s ROOTs School
By Vanessa Wolf
If you dream of gallivanting through a makeshift Middle Earth with a bunch of people pretending to be royalty and mythological creatures while feasting on oversized and overpriced turkey parts, well… this is unlikely to get that weird.
However, this Saturday, March 1, the ROOTS school is proud to present their 2nd Annual Renaissance Faire. This year’s theme presents a madcap jaunt through “The Secret Garden.”
Organizers promise that you can look forward to
- Joking with jesters
- Trying your hand at archery
- Marching on stilts
- Decorating cupcakes
- Creating a work of art or a unique costume.
Located on Haiku Road on Maui, ROOTS – Real Ongoing Opportunities to Soar – is a small private alternative providing an intellectually challenging integrated project-based curriculum.
The event is being held from 6-9 p.m. at the Makawao Union Church Community Hall.
Admission is $5 per person and costumes are encouraged, but maybe think twice about going as a centaur if you happen to be rocking a physique like the guy in the image.
All proceeds benefit ROOTS – the “Little School That Could” – and organizers encourage you to “support a magical primary education, and experience what makes ROOTS such a special place.”
