Free crafts and games at Takura Fairy Fun Fair

DUST off your wings and celebrate spring at the Fabulous Fairy Fun Fair at Takura on Sunday, September 8.

The second annual event, held at the Australiana Cottage Crafts and Herb Farm, will be filled with fairy games, demonstrations and entertainment for young and old.

Everything is free, from admission to crafts and games.

Dance among the bubbles, learn about local birds and frog species and plant a sunflower to take home.

Farm owner Karen Herbert said she was hoping to see everyone dressed in their fairy best.

"I would love to see lots of parents and grandparents dress up like they did last year, as well as the younger children," Mrs Herbert said.

"I have added new fun crafts and games and have made a large fairy chime, which sits in the garden."

Visiting fairies can walk through "a fabulous magical fairy forest" and join in the Fairy Treasure Hunt.

There will be demonstrations on how bees make honey and how to woodturn fairy miniatures.

"You can relax under a tree to the sound of the Harp Fairy or join in and make your own magical music," Mrs Herbert said.
