The Fairy & Gnome Festival was modified due to the current global health crisis. Coronavirus or not, the fairies and gnomes still needed someone to build their homes!
Therefore, families who pre-registered for the Fairy & Gnome-O-Rama picked up a kit filled with natural items to build a home, a fairy or gnome craft, and more! Over the weekend of September 12, they headed to the purple trail at Bill Yeck Park to create a fairy or gnome home.
Houses will remain in place as long as possible … until they begin to fall down! Return to your spot throughout the week for a chance to view all the new homes. You never know who may decide to move in! Children … and adults … are encouraged to dress as a fairy, gnome, or elf to visit the homes!
After completing homes, they continued along the trail for a story from Mother Nature. The trail signs are illustrations only. If you would like to read the story, download the PDF to follow along! Print the pages ahead of time or hold your phone horizontally for the best results!
