The Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire is again offering free tickets to kids who complete a summer reading program at a public library. The tickets are for kids 18 and under and are only good for the weekend of August 16-17, 2014. Accompanying adults will have to pay to get into the Renaissance Faire. Those who would like to have the tickets will need to turn in their completed reading log by Friday, July 25th, so we have time to get the tickets before the weekend of August 16-17, 2014.
