If dancing with some mythical and magical creatures sounds like a good time, head to the Fairy Ball on Paseo Saturday. 

The free evening will be held indoors this year because of the rain.

Starting at 7 p.m. the young and the young at heart will descend on the arts district dressed up as characters from enchanted gardens. 

Expect flower crowns, face painting, original music, dancing, and of course, fairy magic!

It’s free and open to all. 

This year, the Fairy Ball activities will take place indoors, in four different Paseo galleries and businesses:

  • StarDance Swan theatre (3022 Paseo)
  • Paseo Arts Association (also 3022 Paseo)
  • Rainbow Fleet (3024 Paseo)
  • Paseo Pottery (3017 Paseo)
