The knights, rogues, royals and craftsmen of yore are back. The 23rd annual Arizona Renaissance Festival opens Saturday for an eight-weekend run. Set amid a 30-acre European-style village filled with 200 shops, 12 stages, a jousting arena, pubs, and people-powered games and rides, it features a cast of more than 2,000 costumed characters and, of course, giant turkey legs you can wash down with a gulp of honey mead.
