Fairy Interesting

If William Shakespeare were alive today, he’d probably fit right in at Alwun House’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Costume Ball. The Bard did so love a bit of fun and frolic, especially where fairies were involved.

Entertainment for this year’s ball includes live music by Cosmos and a performance by USA Belly Dance Queen Makera, plus an elfin marketplace, Goddess raffle, costume contest and fire dancers. Guests are invited to dress as their favorite fae, or as one of the other characters in Shakespeare’s famous play (though we’re guessing there will be more sprites and mischievous satyrs than floppy-eared asses showing up).
