Wee Folk Fairy Fest Returns to Mainstrasse
One of Covington's most family-friendly events returns to Mainstrasse Village on Saturday and organizer Sandi Stonebreaker of Stoney's All Things Princess & Fairy, the charming boutique on Sixth Street, is ready to welcome all the little fairies and princesses to town. Putting on a festival can be costly for a small business so Stonebreaker put out a call for donations from supporters and one benevolent fan promised to match all the contributions up to $350. That final check arrived, hand-delivered by a fairy on the steps of Stonebreaker's shop Monday afternoon. The event will take place on the Sixth Street Promenade and will feature family activities such as a petting zoo, musical instruments to play, arts & crafts, vendor booths, and performances by the Children's Theater, University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music, Growing Sound, April 8, Tallulah's Dance Troupe, Pharaoh's Drummers, Wulf's Medieval Bagpipes, and Captain Jack Sparrow himself. Traci Hall, who presented the check to Stonebreaker, will serve as the Wee Folk Fair Princess. There will also be a foot parade led by a horse-drawn carriage. Children are encouraged to dress up for all the fun.
