Put your wings on or don your pointy gnome hat and come to Oatland Island Wildlife Center for a day of nature magic at our Fairy and Gnome Festival on May 5, 2018 from 10 a.m.-2:00 p.m. This fantastical day is all about the “wee folk”, and getting up close with the natural world and encouraging imaginative, outdoor play. Children can forage in our forest for fairy surprises; help construct a fairy village using all natural materials; enter in our fairy and gnome fashion show, and have fun dancing around the May pole. There will be other whimsical activities such as face painting, games, crafts, live animal encounters and concessions. Be sure to bring your whole family to stroll Oatland’s trails and catch a glimpse of the fairies and gnomes wandering our enchanted forest! Cost for this fundraising event is regular admission [$5 per adult, $3 per child (4-17) ] plus some activity fees. For further information, please call Oatland Island at 912-395-1517.
