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.
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.
This was my first year taking my grandaughter to Faeries, Spries, & Lights
. She had a blast. It was so hard for me to pick a picture to submit because I took so many good ones of her.
Last year I took my 2 year old to Faeries, Sprites, and Lights
for the first time. She loved it so much the first night we had to come back the second night! She loved running down the arch way where her favorite fairy, Chloe was coloring with sidewalk chalk. She also thought the band was fun and dancing in the fairy circle with the other little girls.
