February's Fairy Tale readings included pirates, sea serpents and jellyfish, and a visit from Ariel, the little mermaid in her human form! The faeries are hoping you can bring your children March 28, when Fae Michele, Madam Make-Believe will be back! There are snacks! And usually balloons and/or facepaints!
On February 28th, despite the show (AGAIN), the local press came out also, and wrote this article: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/baltimore-city/north-baltimore/ph-ms-faerie-tells-0305-20150304-story.html
Thank you to Larry Perl, writer, and Steve Ruark, photographer! Excerpt:
"It's beautiful," Calloway said when asked why she brought Fiona and Fiona's sister, Etta, 1, to North Baltimore to participate in Faerie Tells, a new, monthly storytelling and play hour at the Episcopal church. "It's creative. You get to run around and have fun."
Faeries have a place in Calloway's world view. When asked whether she actually believes in them, she said, "I do in a way. There are a lot of mysterious things that happen — and faeries are mischievous."
The Baltimore region's surprisingly robust network of faerie enthusiasts is making plenty of mischief these days, much of it at Guardian Angel, 27th Street and Huntingdon Avenue, where they are organizing a Baltimore Faerie Faire, believed to be the first urban festival of its kind in the city.
The fest is set for May 16, two weeks after the 24th annual Spoutwood Farm May Day Faerie Festival, May 1-3 in Glen Rock, Pa. — considered the faerie godmother of faerie festivals — and a month before the 11th annual Maryland Faerie Festival, which is scheduled for June 14-15, in Darlington in Harford County.
