[ARCHIVED] 5th Annual Fairy House Festival at Pine Banks Park

Fairy House Attendees

Hundreds of residents from Malden and surrounding cities and towns attended Malden’s fifth Annual Fairy House event last Saturday at Pine Banks Park. Fairy House houses are whimsical habitats built for fairies and nature’s other friends – hobbits, elves, and trolls. Event organizer Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy was dressed as Mother Nature and many children sported fairy wings, elf hats and costumes. “To see families working together to build their version of a special home for nature’s friends is delightful,” said Councillor Murphy. “It’s a time to get unplugged and sprinkle a bit of fairy dust in our world.”

Participants were encouraged to either pre-build their houses or make them at the event in the Builder’s Workshop for entrance into the Fairy House Walk contest Malden Public Library Director Dora St. Martin held a story hour and music was performed by Malden High School chamber Orchestra flautist Alissa Schoop. The day included an arts and crafts table sponsored by Ward 5 resident Cathy Bartlett as well as a face painting station run by Kay Allen, Naomi Kahn and Jessica Zaks. This year’s winners:
