The glen had been cleared, ashes from the bonfires and anything left behind after the night was nowhere in sight. Decorations for the more family day had been prepared. Streamers and flowers littered the area, flowing from booths to tables. Many of the booths had been opened up to the kids to roam around freely, the area secured to protect the youth of Rhy'din. A perimeter was set up, wide but always overlooked by men sporting the Batten logo
. This way the children were able to roam free, enjoy the activities, pick flowers, and enjoy the day without getting lost or in any danger and parents were able to rest assure that their offspring was safe.
Tables are set with lemonaid drinks of different flavors, waters, and juices for the kiddies. As well as tables of sugary goodness. Pink and white chocolate covered pretzels, lollipops, small chocolates, peppermints, and rock candy sticks. There are also cakes and cupcakes surrounded by mini maypoles just waiting to be consumed by tiny people.
There are also small circlets of flowers and leafy greenman masks for the children to sport while running around.
A stall is opened for face painting done by two sisters dressed in matching masquerade outfits. They eagerly await to paint faces young and old. Just tell them what you want or leave them to their creativity. Either way you will not be disappointed!
The firedancers have came out during the day to preform for the children. A trio of sisters with their fans will even, under carefully planned conditions, teach the children how to firedance with fans.
Musicians will be playing foot tapping ditties for children to dance to. This includes dancing with ribbons and wrapping the Children's May Pole! Children will be informed of the colors and what they represent ahead of time. So grab a ribbon and get to moving those tiny feet! The colors represent: Red - strength, Blue - healing, Green - home or money, Yellow - new beginnings, help with school, Orange - friendship, Pink - self-love, Purple and White - spiritual growth.
It seems over night that the fairies had been working overtime because flowers galore filled the area with color and smells. Children are encourage to fill baskets with these colorful displays of nature's glory. Weave crowns, press a flower in a book for eternal keeping, use your imagination and enjoy the flowering colors from mother earth.
Sitting in her stall a mysterous woman can be seen. Her clothing is sparse, representing a creature of nature. A fae? With the mask she wears it is hard to tell. Silently she works, painting on the surface of water with her paints and almost magically seems to transfer them onto paper for children to take home. The woman and her art are both..a mystery!
