Fairies, their families and admirers attended the Fall Fairy Festival at Merryspring Nature Center Saturday, Sept. 6.

Several fairies came in full regalia, with wings, wands and crowns. They were invited to make fairy houses on the grounds, or enjoy ones made by Merryspring staff. In addition, author Liza Gardner Walsh was on hand to sign copies of her books, “Fairy House Handbook” and “Fairy Garden Handbook.” She also offered face-painting for fairies who desired a little extra ornamentation.

In addition, there was a table with materials for fairy-inspired crafts.
