We have never been to Minnetrista's Faeries event, but we would love to come check it out. My little girl is *in love* with all things faerie. We homeschool and did a unit this last spring...pulling out some of the best faerie stories from the library.
My daughter is 14 now, but every time we drive past the gardens of Minnetrista she lights up. She tells me the story of when her God-parents and their daughter took her to Faeries, Sprites & Lights
- she was just 5 or 6 years old at the time.
The Bubble garden was the favorite spot of the evening, flying through the air popping bubbles with her wand, can't wait to do it again!!
My four year old daughter is in love with faeries!! When we go for walks or explore outside she is often finding tiny places where faeries love to hide. She even calls her peas "faerie berries!" :) She was super excited to be a faerie in Muncie Ballet Studio's presentation of Peter Pan this last spring. It would be like a dream come true for her to be able to attend this year's Faeries, Sprites & Lights
for her first time!
This will be my daughter's first Fairies,
Sprites,& Lights and we cannot wait!! As you can see, we love fairies and
are looking forward to all the fun!!

Last year was our first time to visit Faeries, Sprites and Lights and the best word to describe it is magical. My children thought we had been transported to an enchanted forest! They loved the music, the play and especially looking for faeries! We have been looking forward to this event and were even more excited when we saw the sign at the entrance of Minnetrista which has my daughter Hayley on it. We can't wait to share another magical evening there with friends!
Two years ago while attending the Faeries,Sprites & Lights Festival with my then 5 year old granddaughter I had a most wonderous experience. First let me say that I have been attending this event since it began.My little girl was about seven when she attended the workshops and events.
Congratulations to the winners! Watch the video to see who won the Faeries, Sprites & Lights contest. Thank you to everyone who submitted a faerie story! We really enjoyed them all. The faeries picked four stories, totally at random, and left a scroll with their names on it for us to find in Oakhurst Gardens.
My experiences with faeries have varied from those in the forest, to those in the water (particularly the White River), to those in my bonfires that aren't hardly even visible until you take a picture and discover faces in the fire (which is considerably higher in the photo than it actually was when it was taken). I sometimes hear their music playing not-so-far away and even receive occasional harassment to leave them treats outside.
