The Castles, Towers, and Palaces of Fiction’s Greatest Princes & Princesses (and perhaps a few Sorcerers and Witches)
October 1 through November 1, 2015
Ready to romp through some royal realms?
Visitors follow the “Treasured Map” to over thirty hand-crafted faerie kingdoms and scenes – from Cinderella’s enchanted castle to Rapunzel’s towering tower to Aladdin’s shimmering palace. All ages will marvel at the detail and craftsmanship as they visit scenes from King Arthur, Harry Potter, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Lord of the Rings.
This year, the artists have been challenged to create their kingdoms using natural materials. Their imaginations are sure to create fanciful edifices detailed with pinecone pinnacles, fungus fortresses, acorn-topped timbered towers, bark-covered buttresses, fluttering feather flags, and driftwood drawbridges.
Sound the mini-faerie trumpets!
