Join family fun at Fairies and Fantasy Festival
Magical event supports city’s children’s hospitals
IT’S time to sprinkle a little bit of fairy dust about and welcome some magic into your life.
The fifth annual Fairies and Fantasy Festival will flutter into action from 10am this Sunday at the Creative Spirit Centre, at Minchinbury.
While the event is focused on encouraging everyone to spread their fairy wings and rediscover their inner twinkle, the festival also will raise funds for and awareness of KidsWest children’s charity which financially supports the children’s hospitals of Sydney.
Families are encouraged to come along to the free day out and add some shine and laughter while enjoying the delightful early spring weather.
There will be plenty of children’s activities on offer, including a jumping castle, fairy face painting, craft, pony rides and go karts.
People can bring a picnic lunch or make it an easy day and buy supplies.
There’ll also be about 200 showbags from which to choose, catering for all ages and tastes, with proceeds donated to KidsWest.
Organiser Kathy Lattore said before last year’s event that the festival was a great day of entertainment for families.
“The festival, affectionately nicknamed fairy day, is a great excuse for the family to get dressed up and have fun,” Ms Lattore said.
She said the Creative Spirit Centre opened on International Angels Day in 2011 and had developed as a community of shops, services, and a cafe that offered a peaceful experience and social hub.
The centre is described as a one-stop destination for mind, body, spirit and creativity.
The fairy festival will be held in the grounds of the M Centre, Great Western Highway, Minchinbury.
