Once upon a time, in a garden not far away, lay an enchanted place, on a special day…join us for a day of fantasy, enchantment and imagination. This family-friendly event includes a safari hunt, face painting, crafts and games, fairy manicures and pirate tattoos, a balloon twister, dancing around a Maypole, a wishing bush, and building your own fairy house at the Gnome Depot.
