Friday kicks off a three-day Orlando Renaissance Festival at Bill Fredrick Park.

This is the inaugural year for this particular Renaissance festival organized by Kira Phillips. Nearly 4,000 people on Facebook say they’re going.

Fair-goers can expect a historical reenactment village, a live chess match, merchants, crafts, and live music. Also, expect cosplay and people dressed in Renaissance clothing.

“There’s something really romantic about that time period, you know the swishy dresses, and the dashing men, and men and women fighting with swords,” said a spokeswoman for the festival, Casey Robbins.
