Life and Whim will be set up in the green space across from Left Foot Charley and Higher Grounds Coffee with "Susie Q," our vintage camper pop-up shop. We will be hosting a crafting session for kids starting at 2:00 p.m. At 2:30 p.m. there will be a march back to the Fairy Trails led by local musician Pete Farmer, who will be playing at the event from 2:00-3:00 p.m. Kids are encouraged to wear fairy wings and/or animal inspired attire to march in the parade!

EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF THE FAIRY TRAILS
There’s a lot that went into building the Fairy Trails, but the main ingredients that keep it magical are the creativity, imagination and hard work of the kids who love and care for it. The best way to experience the Fairy Trails is to visit and explore, but in the meantime here’s a video compilation of fairy house building at its best.
