The 2013 Fairy Tale Ball ~ An Enchanted Evening

Sometimes, fairy tales do come true!  Just wear a shiny suit of armor, a sparkly ball gown, or dress like your favorite fairy tale character, and join us for an evening of fantasy and frivolity at the sixth annual Fairy Tale Ball

At the ball you can learn about the wonders of medieval science with the Royal Alchemist, enjoy fables of yore in a royal reading tent, create courtly crafts, be captivated by the castle juggler, and try your luck at the labyrinth—if you dare!
