OKLAHOMA CITY -- Fairies of all ages will be fluttering around in Oklahoma City for Paseo's Annual Fairy Ball on Saturday, September 24.

The event full of musical wonder and dance will run from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Parents, Grandparents, and friends are welcome to spend this evening with children.

The Fairy Ball is a dress up event engaging children in make believe. Children are invited to come to the Ball dressed as a character from an enchanted garden. The fun for families begins at home before the Fairy Ball as children and their parents create costumes to wear to the Ball. At past Fairy Balls, children have dressed up as bugs, blossoms, elves, gremlins, fairies and magical characters of their imaginations.

"Children fully participate in bringing this Summer evening to life," says, Lorrie Keller director of Theatre Upon a StarDanceSwan who is the designers of this event. "Young active imaginations are the true ingredient that lights up the Ball. Right now, as StarDanceSwan is preparing for the Ball, we are creating a time and place where children can capture the magic of color, music and dance, "

Once children arrive at the Fairy Ball they can add finishing touches to their costumes with flowers and things that fly in the wind as they dance. At dusk, shimmering music by Steve McLinn, OJAS, and the StarDanceSwan Fairies invite children to dance in their own creative ways.
