On June 23rd, Lough Gur will come alive to celebrate family life, dreams and create magical memories to last a life time.
The Lough Gur fairies have agreed to host a special fairy ball so to add to the magic we are encouraging all the boys and girls to dress up for the occasion. A King / Queen of the ball will be crowned at each dance. There will be face painting, arts & crafts, activity sheets and storytelling.
Children will be given the opportunity to design their own fairy door which they can keep as a special souvenir of their day.
Áine – Queen of the Fairies will be onsite throughout the day to ensure everyone is having fun and spreading her mystical aura on the proceedings. Áine will host a special Story Time at 3pm at the Fairy Village where she will introduce the enhanced Fairy Trail and advise on how to deal with mischievous fairies.
An Activity Sheet, including a map of the Fairy Trail, will be available from the Heritage Centre for visitors wishing to check out the fairies and their homes. Hopefully you might spot one of the magical flying creatures – only true believers are capable of this! Gearoid Earla will also be making a visit to the lake, as instructed by his mother Queen Áine.
Families can bring a picnic and take full advantage of the scenic areas on the lakefront. This event promises to bring great excitement and fun, with lots of creative, magical and enchanting activities for all the family.
