This weekend marks the 60th birthday of the world-famous Children's Fairyland, and our help is needed!
To commemorate this special day, the Fairyland will be doing various special events, including staff members dressing up, special shows at the children's theater, and various crafts booths. Our duties may include kids crafts, serving cake, and other tasks that are being still being sorted out right now.
Work as long as you want. I plan to be there until approximately 2:30pm. I can provide a carpool from my home in Berkeley at 8:45am.
We will meet outside the main entrance of the Fairyland (look for the giant Lady in the Shoe, you can't miss her) at 9:30am. We will then enter the park, and I will give a brief tour to anyone who is new there. After that, we will be briefed on our duties and enjoy the rest of the day!About the Fairyland
Started in 1948, the Children's Fairyland is one of the oldest amusement parks. It sits on the shores of Lake Merrit in Oakland, and has served as an inspiration to many other amusement parks, including one that you may be familiar with, called Disneyland. Today, the Fairyland operates as a non-profit organization, and continues to delight children all throughout the Bay Area.
