WHAT IS THE MIDSUMMER FAERIE RADE?
Our Faerie Rade will be a jubilant parade of magnificently costumed folk who will be giving gifts, playing music with jingling bells and trailing bubbles in the air.
This is a family friendly gathering open to everyone who loves to dress up and participate in creating beauty, whimsy and fun.
The only requirements are that you attend in costume and support the spirit of gift-giving, good will, joyous merriment and rampant creativity.
WHAT IS A FANCY?
A Fancy is an idea, a thought, a snippet of wisdom or inspiration, or positive emotion embodied in a small gift to be given to stranger or left for someone to find.
The value in giving is the positive energy that is created. Joy can be manifested, and is most easily harvested when it is shared. Therefore the strongest and most worthy gift is a gift of thought, of energy.
