THE fourth an­nual Fairies and Fan­tasy Fes­ti­val took flight at Minch­in­bury this week­end.

Or­gan­iser Kathy La­torre said this year’s event at­tracted “more than ever be­fore”.

“It was re­ally good, it was def­i­nitely our big­gest ever,” Ms La­torre said.

“We filled the carpark at the M Cen­tre on the Great Western High­way, which is a pretty big space.

“The whole day just had a re­ally great vibe, the weather was per­fect and ev­ery­one was hav­ing fun.”

Ms La­torre said many iconic char­ac­ters joined the fes­tiv­i­ties and proved a real high­light for chil­dren.

“Elsa from Frozen was par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar and so was the Min­ion,” she said.

“We had a free jump­ing castle all day, the pet­ting zoo is al­ways pop­u­lar, we had a spe­cial fairy face­painter and go karts.”

Ms La­torre said all the show bags were sold out by noon.

“That was the big­gest part of our fundraiser for chil­dren’s char­ity Kid­sWest so it was a fan­tas­tic re­sult,” she said. “Hope­fully, if we can se­cure some cor­po­rate spon­sors, we can sell even more next year.”
