BUCKSPORT – Fairies, pirates, elves and wizards traveled to Bucksport Sunday for a Pixie Harbor Hoopla.
“I think it’s a really good thing for kids to get out to and dress up,” said Melissa Wortham, 12, of Bucksport.
Sprites of all ages spread their wings at this festival of fun and games.
A sprinkler helped to beat the heat, but fairies had to be extra cautious.
“I know that if their wings get wet, they can’t fly,” said Tessa Falvey, 7, of Bucksport.
Kids could stop by the “Gnome Depot” for bark, leaves, shells and other supplies to build their very own fairy houses.
“You get to do anything you want to with it and be, well, creative,” said Wortham.
Participants then brought those materials to the Waterfront Walkway to build fairy houses. Anyone walking through said the houses added a little extra magic.
“I think the little houses that the kids are making are so creative,” said Bertha Caler of Washington County.
But why just stop at houses?
“We got a little green house, we have a little playground that my sister’s friend is building,” said Sam Soper, 12, of Orland. “Then we have a camp, like a little log cabin.”
Thanks to these kids, fairies will be living large.
“It has a porch and some stairs,” said Falvey, “and a garden, and a pool!”
“I think it’s a great event for children,” said Caler. “I love it, just love it.”
