Due to COVID-19, The Children’s Center is unable to host their annual Fairyland Festival at Cate Park in Wolfeboro, NH this year. But that won’t stop us from celebrating in a new way with two special events! The center will host an online fairy-house contest. We will also hold "Fairy Find," Saturday, July 11, from 9 to 11 a.m. on Bridge Falls Path in Wolfeboro.

First, The Children’s Center will be hosting an online contest. Contestants are encouraged to make fairy houses and forts from the comfort of their own homes and submit pictures as entries via Facebook Messenger to The Children's Center by Friday, July 10. There will be two different categories this year. The first category is the traditional “all natural” approach the festival has promoted for many years. Fairy houses and/or forts should be made completely out of materials found in nature. The second is an arts and crafts category which could include but not limited to building with LEGO or popsicle sticks, paper, fabric, or anything you can find around the house. Check out the Center’s Facebook page for more event information. To vote, visit the Center’s Facebook page July 13-17 and like or comment on your favorite entry. There will be first, second, and third prize winners for each category. Winners will be announced on the Center’s Facebook page Monday, July 22.

Second, The Children’s Center will be organizing a “Fairy Find” on Bridge Falls Path on Saturday, July 11, 9 to 11 a.m. (rain or shine!). Starting at Back Bay by Foss Field and walking the path to Whitten Neck Road, families will search for hidden fairies and pirates along the way. Kid masks and prizes for all who participate!
