Druids, fairies and dragons! Oh my!
Before summer reaches its hellish intensity, escape to another world where the accepted garb leans more toward corsets and staffs than bikinis and shades. The annual Celtic Midsummer Faerie Festival offers not only the expected musical minstrels, but also many surprising additions. The true appeal lies in the offbeat mystery of entertainment acts such as Sexy Cernunnos: Stag Horned God of the Greenwood and a fire-breathing dragon with a 6-foot wingspan. Prancing its way through the Fair Oaks VFW Property, located at 8990 Kruithof Way in Fair Oaks, the jubilation occurs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free with a donation of two canned goods, and for more information you can call (916) 443-2866. As these shadows will certainly not offend, do not slumber here, so that you may behold the midsummer visions that appear.
