Every late spring St. Louis puts on what's called the Renaissance Faire in a town park about 45 minutes west of the city center. The conceit is that it's a make-believe visit to the Lyon of 1518. Many members, like the father and daughter here, go deep into period costume, staying in role with everyone they encounter. They speak with heavy Midwest-French accents and are taught a few words of the language. You can really throw them off if they take their leave with an au revoir, à bientôt by replying jusqu'à l'année prochaine! That's beyond the training.
