The Fairy Ball is a dress up event engaging children in a favorite pastime, that of making believe. Children are invited to come to the Ball dressed as a character from an enchanted garden.  The fun for families begins at home before the Fairy Ball as children and their parents create costumes to wear to the Ball.  At past Fairy Balls, children have dressed up as bugs, blossoms, elves, gremlins, fairies and magical characters of their imaginations.
