Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

RIDGELY — Bring your wings and wands for a day of magic at Ad­kins Ar­bore­tum for the sec­ond an­nual Fairyfest from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Satur­day, Oct. 14, for fan­tasy and fun in the for­est.

Fol­low a trail of fairy houses along en­chanted for­est paths, and join in a meadow may­pole dance. Search for gnomes in the Fun­shine Gar­den, craft mag­i­cal trea­sures to take home, and wave to the Billy Goats Gruff from atop a hay wagon.

The event in­cludes live en­ter­tain­ment through­out the day in the wood­land the­atre, shim­mer­ing fairy face paint­ing, rain­bow bub­bles, archery and fairy­tale games. Uni­corn rides pro­vided by Snap­dragon Sta­bles and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able for pur­chase.

Kick­ing off the fun, Mas­ter Nat­u­ral­ist Beth Law­ton will of­fer a spe­cial Fairy Mak­ers craft­ing pro­gram for ages 12 and older on Fri­day, Oct. 13. Crafted of felt, silk flow­ers, wooden beads and seed pods, the tiny acorn fairies made in the work­shop will de­light fairy lovers of all age. Each par­tic­i­pant will cre­ate a one-of-a-kind fairy to take home. The work­shop is $10 for mem­bers and $15 for non-mem­bers; spots are lim­ited., and ad­vance reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired at ad­kin­sar­bore­tum.org.

Ad­mis­sion to Fairyfest is $10 for adults and chil­dren ages three and older. Chil­dren ages two and un­der are ad­mit­ted free.
