A Midsummer Celebration; Faeries, Sprites, and Lights at Minnetrista
Muncie, IN—A long time ago, little girl through her vivid
imagination, created a faerie wonderland in her own back yard. Her name was
Elisabeth Ball, she held tea parties, made little magic boxes and carefully
left them in the gardens to attract the faeries. Nearly 100 years later, the
imagination lives on in Oakhurst Gardens at Minnetrista, with Faeries, Sprites, and Lights. A family
extravaganza, come take part in this midsummer enchantment with faeries and
sprites from far and wide. July 8 & 9 from 6–9 p.m.
Don’t miss the excitement as we celebrate with the faeries, enjoy faerie theatre and music, and hundreds of luminaries throughout Oakhurst! Come dressed in faerie or sprite attire and experience the magic of Faeries, Sprites, and Lights first-hand then be a part of the farewell parade each evening!
The celebration will include:
- Theatre performance—The Golden Touch.
