current property site, so many
shop owners are expanding and
improving their stores. Some are
even adding second floors, Mc
Cullough said. The buildings stay
up all year, and minor repairs are
made before the festival starts.
McCullough said that although
many of the participants stay in
the Kansas City area during the
five weeks, she drives home every
weekend to replenish her supply
of stuffed dragons, stars, unicorns
and rainbows. She said she never
knows what the big seller will be
for a specific weekend. The favor
ites tend to be the realistic drag
ons, which come in several colors
with their chests and wings in a
shiny material that appears scaly.
McCullough also has sokTher
sculptures at the University Place
Art Center and has helped put on
mini-renaissance festivals at Pres
cott Elementary School where
she would make her dragons in
front of the children, so they
could see how she makes them.

Festival is worth the price. The
days are filled with free song and

Shakespearean theater and jug

There is so much to see and do
that'one day at the festival may
not be enough. Wandering nom
ads and wenches are bound to
come up to the unsuspecting and
ask about where people are from,
how far away from London they
are, or how they would like a roll
in the hay. One also could be
pulled into an act at any time or
participate in games such as Slay
the Dragon, Drench a Wench or
ride on Stoney the Elephant.
One needn't go hungry amid
feasts of giant turkey drumsticks,
tempura, shish kebob.s, huge

lemon half topped with frozen
sherbet) and nearly anything else
a stomach could desire.
