Two for One

There's added incentive if you shedule your party between now and June 23. With the addition of the free Woodland Fairy Festival activities, it’s like getting two parties for the price of one! Guests will love discovering their fairy names, posing in front of the many winged wall photo spots, visiting the fairy house displays, and following along on the A to Z Fairy Quest.
