Theme: A familiar fairy tale provides us an opportunity to experience life during Renaissance times.

This classic fairy tale is about a strange little man that helps the miller’s daughter spin straw into gold for the king. The only condition she must make is that she will give him her firstborn child.
 

LeVar finds this era coming to life when he visits a Renaissance festival in California. Viewers will experience what it was like to live in the days of lords, kings, queens and knights in shining armor. LeVar explores the festival where daily life — such as spinning and weaving — is reenacted, and traveling performers — such as minstrels and jesters — all take part in the fanfare.
