Join us for an all NEW Summer Kick-off event at Michigan Legacy Art Park.
Let your imagination take off as you create your own fort or fairy house in nature from things found in nature.
What better way to usher in the celebration of long summer days than to use your imagination in a natural setting. Children of all ages are invited to create their own fort or fairy house, flower tiaras, fairies, flags, and drums from found objects.
Fairy crafting will be led by Dana Goodwin, founding director and teacher of the The Children’s Urban Garden and Atelier.Storytellers from the Betsie Valley District Library will present classic fairy tales. Participants will march to the Fort led by musician Tim Joseph, for the annual raising of the flag. Light refreshments will be provided. Admission for this event is free for children and youth accompanied by an adult with paid admission. General adult admission is $5.00.
