Our Faerie Rade will be a jubilant parade of magnificently costumed folk who will be giving gifts, playing music with jingling bells and trailing bubbles in the air. This is a family friendly gathering open to everyone who loves to dress up and participate in creating beauty, whimsy and fun. The only requirements are that you attend in costume and support the spirit of gift-giving, good will, joyous merriment and rampant creativity. WHAT IS A FANCY? A Fancy is an idea, a thought, a snippet of wisdom or inspiration, or positive emotion embodied in a small gift to be given to stranger or left for someone to find. The value in giving is the positive energy that is created. Joy can be manifested, and is most easily harvested when it is shared. Therefore the strongest and most worthy gift is a gift of thought, of energy. _________________________________________ BAG-MINDING You can leave your bags with the Bag-Minder in the gardens while you are walking through the city. No need to carry anything heavy on the Rade! _________________________________________ SAFETY RULES * Never cross an intersection when the red man is flashing, even if people in front of you are still crossing. Wait at the lights and let Raders behind you catch up to you. * When stopping, move next to the wall and stand out of the way. Keep aside on all footpaths and allow other pedestrians to pass you. Do not block walkways, doors or entrances to shops. * Take care of each other and watch over any children or people with mobility difficulties. * Be respectful towards everyone and mindful of all traffic hazards. If you are asked to move out of the way please do so promptly. BE SUNSAFE * Wear sunscreen, hats or carry parasols to ensure you don't get sunburnt * Drink water whenever possible - it's great for your health and it's important not to get dehydrated on hot days. __________________________________________ MORE INFORMATION Visit www.GoldenOwlEvents.com for info on ... * What To Bring * The Faerie Court * Raffle Prizes and Sponsors * The Folklore of Faerie Rades * The Gathering, Rade and Picnic
