There's still time to get your giant turkey legs.

The Minnesota Renaissance Festival announced this week that it is extending its drive-through experience on the Shakopee fairgrounds through mid-October.

The event was originally scheduled to end this weekend (there are still limited tickets available as of this writing), but now that it's been extended people can attend the Festival on Parade on weekends through Oct. 18. 

“We’re thrilled to have created an experience for those who couldn’t go just one year without our festival and extending it is just our way of keeping the great Renaissance Festival tradition alive,” Communications Director Stephanie Whipps said in a statement.

The annual festival was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so it did what many events are doing and decided to offer a drive-through version where cars full of people can drive through the festival grounds to buy 30 different festival food items, including the giant turkey legs, soup in a bread bowl, pickles and more. 

Not only that, but the drive-through Ren Fest also offers flower crowns, wooded swords and other festival goodies for purchase along the 2.5-mile route, as well as performers keeping you entertained throughout the village.
