Kids celebrate

It's all about kids as the 19th annual Philadelphia International Children's Festival continues through Sunday.

The StageWorks program includes jugglers, puppeteers, storytellers and magicians, and the PlayWorks program teaches kids how to make African drums, Hmong tapestry and Native American dream catchers.

The festival is in the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts (3680 Walnut St.) and in the Iron Gate Theatre (37th and Chestnut streets). Tickets are $12 for the first show, and $6 for the same number of tickets purchased for each additional show.

Just 45 minutes north of Baltimore lies Spoutwood Farm in Glen Rock, Pa. The organic farm, owned by Rob and Lucy Wood, is the location of the 12th annual May Day Fairie Festival on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event includes Celtic musicians and dancers, magicians, arts and crafts, Maypole dancing, food and "fairie and other Nature Spirit environments to explore." Woodland gnome and elf tours, fairy tea parties and photo opportunities with fairies are also included in the price ($10 adults, $5 ages 12 and younger, free ages 2 and younger). Admission fees will be refunded to guests who volunteer at a two-hour job assignment. Visitors are encouraged to wear fairy attire; the first 100 people entering the festival in costume will receive a free bag of fairy dust. Visit www.fairiefesti or for more information.
