Come Alive Outside and Partners for Prevention are celebrating fantasy, fairytales and folklore during their Magical Mischief festival at Rotary Park. This free event connects people to the magic of nature with games, activities and a costume parade in the green space of Rotary Park.
Enjoy hands-on activities that will stoke creativity and fire up imaginations. Festival-goers can adopt an Ent or test their skills by tackling Merlin’s bootcamp, and create affirmation charms. Build a fairy house, make a wand or create a blessed charm during this celebration of outdoor magic. They can also listen to magical stories told by mythical creatures and soak a mermaid or a mortal in the dunk tank. Humans of all ages can also dust off their fairy wings for the costume parade at noon, with winners receiving bragging rights, plus a little token of their victory.
Food trucks Frickin’ Chicken and So-Full Sisters will be serving up signature dishes and beverages for purchase. Participants enjoying the food trucks should bring cash. Families experiencing financial hardship are invited to request Food Truck vouchers from [email protected].
Magical Mischief will take place in light drizzle or shine. Cancellations due to inclement weather will be posted on Come Alive Outside’s social media channels and on their website. Stay up to date on weather and event parking by visiting comealiveoutside.com/events/
