Fairies and Forts

By Jillian Manning | June 18, 2022

The annual tradition of Fairies and Forts returns to Michigan Legacy Art Park in Thompsonville on Saturday, June 25, at 10am. Perfect for the kiddos who want to wear the fairy wings from their Halloween costume all year, the event offers a chance to make crowns, build fairy houses, and create bookmarks with the help of staff from the Betsie Valley District Library. Musical duo Luunappi will perform music and stories at 11am followed by a “March to the Fort” at 11:45am. For the march, drummers from the TC West High School marching band will lead attendees to the park’s Stockade Labyrinth—a walled maze and work of art by MLAP founder David Barr—to raise the fort flag. Kids and families receive free admission to the park for the day (normally $5/adult). Meet at the trailhead at 10am at 12500 Crystal Mountain Dr., on the grounds of Crystal Mountain Resort.
