The Seventh Annual Fairy Tale Ball

The Urbana Free Library Fairy Tale Ball

A Special After-Hours Event • Friday, April 4 • 6:00-9:00 p.m.

You are cordially invited to the most anticipated event of the year--the 2014 Fairy Tale Ball!  Princes and Princesses of all ages can don their shiny suit of armor, their sparkly ball gown, or dress like their favorite fairy tale character, and join us for an evening of fun, fantasy, and frivolity.  At the ball, you can dance to your heart's content, create enchanting crafts, listen to courtly music, or test your skill at medieval games. 

The Seventh Annual Fairy Tale Ball is generously sponsored by Fred Schlipf and Diane Hillard
