Grand Finale with the Fairy King & Queen

At the end of the Fair all magical creatures, characters, entertainers and visitors are invited to join the Fairy King and Queen.  Their Majesties will process from their tent to the Stage on the Main Lawn. 

Feel free to join them in the procession on the way, or assemble in front of the stage.  They will pause to inspect Watering Cans near the stage.  The Queen will address the crowd and invite the Head Fairy Gardener to give the official Fairyland ‘State of Nature‘ report. The Queen will bless the Watering Cans and give closing remarks before the procession resumes to The Gates and the Fair closes.  So be sure to bring your Watering Cans and if they are not blinged already, visit Bling Your Watering Can during the Fair.
