Eight Independent readers and their guests are heading to the Arizona Renaissance Festival. They were the first eight entries to respond to the Independent’s contest and correctly answer which is the newest attraction at the festival (It’s the new Living Mermaids.).

The winners are: Connie Borszich, Matt Keyser, Randy Kraft, Wayne Lamm, Gordon Letizia, Deb Ley, Gloria Lorts and Susan Scott.

Each won a family four-pack of tickets (two adult, two child) plus VIP parking.

The Arizona Renaissance Festival is celebrating its 28th season of pomp and pageantry.

It runs 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, Feb. 6-March 27 and Monday, Feb. 15 (Presidents Day)

Cheer for brave knights and roam a 30-acre festival village filled with whimsical castles, cottages, pubs and 13 stages of nonstop performances of music, dance, acrobatics and comedy. Foolish pleasures mix with artisan treasures as you shop, eat and revel with a cast of nearly 2,000 colorfully costumed characters.

Prepare for new shows, new stage and don’t forget to reserve your seat at the Pleasure Feast with a five-course dinner and variety show.
