THE END OF THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD…

Last year I wrote a post about theYellow Brick Road at Fairytale Town in Land Park. The road greeted visitors in a joyful celebration of the community.It is being “paved” in 3 stages, the final deadline for participants approaching. I was fortunate to be a part of the second phase. I chose to let the world know how much my granddaughters, Cailyn and Bailey mean to me!The number of names I recognize on other bricks is remarkable – truly a neighborhood project!So, if you have someone you would like to celebrate, it isn’t too late…act quickly!

SACRAMENTO’S FAIRYTALE TOWN CELEBRATES 50 YEARS!

SACRAMENTO’S FAIRYTALE TOWN CELEBRATES 50 YEARS!

My memories of Fairytale Town? Let’s see…loved the Crooked Mile, so wanted my birthday party at the Castle (not a great idea in January) and being chased by a goose that I am sure was 10 feet tall! Now I get to help create some memories for my granddaughters…how fun is that? Fairytale Town was opened in 1959 and has been a Sacramento destination for children and adults alike since. You can even join their Twitter Group for updates on chick hatchings, set improvements and field trips. There are some truly remarkable trivia about the wonderful playground for children. All of the sets at Fairytale Town were built by volunteer labor and donated goods. Presently, Fairytale Town is raising funds through their “ Yellow Brick Road” . The “Town” was selected as a filming location for the BBC (a documentary about twins) and the Muscular Dystrophy Association for film clips of children playing. There are a multitude of coming events such as a 50’s theme Crystal Rockin’ Royal 50th Anniversary Bash on August 29th from 5-9, th eTwilight Concert Series on Wednesdays (July 22, August 5th and August 19th) at 6:00, Scholarshare Children’s Book Festival on September 26th and 27th from 10AM to 4PM and so, so much more! To learn more about these and other events, go on line to Fairytale Town. See ya there! www.PaulaSwayne.com...
