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.
