A Witchy Tale

Meet Starla. She's one of the new Gardner Village witches to join the fun this year.

starla the witch 

"I've been coming to WitchFest for years. First, with my children, and then with my grandchildren. Every time we'd visit, I'd walk around thinking about how much fun it would be to be a witch. Finally, I got brave and designed a costume so I could come to this year's tryouts. To now be a witch is very much a dream come true.

If you happen upon Starla at this year's WitchFest, make sure you check out her staff. Rumor has it, she sometimes keeps pixie sticks (also known as pixie dust) in its pouches.

"If you have a dream, never give up on it. Through hard work and hanving in there, dreams come true." --Starla the Witch

Witchy Wonderment

Yes, this time of year is definitely full of shenanigans and silliness at Gardner Village. We can't wait for you to stop by and experience the mayhem and magic for yourself!
