Find ice cream and dreaming at Fairytale Town

Fairytale Town celebrates Shakespeare’s classic fairy play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” at the storybook park’s annual ice cream social event on Saturday, June 29 from 6 to 10 p.m.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Crystal Ice Cream Fantasy” features nonstop entertainment for the whole family, including live music, theatrical performances, fanciful arts and crafts activities, and all the Crystal Ice Cream one can eat.

Celtic-rock band 1916 will perform throughout the evening. With influences and sounds comparable to Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys, 1916 is steadily carving its niche on the American music scene.

Touring predominately in California, Nevada and Washington, the group plays its original tunes, the traditional songs of Ireland and Scotland and rock and roll classics with a unique twist.

Shakespeare Lite, the education and outreach arm of the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival, will perform the classic scene of “Pyramus and Thisbe” from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in the Children’s Theater.

Multiple arts and crafts activities will be stationed throughout the park, and vendors will be on hand to offer their traditional wares in the Olde Worlde Marketplace.

Pirates of Sacramento will offer rollicking fun for all ages at the Pirate Skool, and fairies, satyrs, elves and more from Kaotic Mythicals will engage guests with games, crafts and exhibits.

Different flavors of Crystal Ice Cream will be available for sampling throughout the evening. Costumes for the entire family are encouraged.

Mix 96′s Jennifer Wood will emcee the event.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Crystal Ice Cream Fantasy brings the magical world of Shakespeare’s famous play to life,” said Kathy Fleming, executive director of Fairytale Town. “It will be a fun and educational evening that adults and children will enjoy.”

Advance tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children ages 2 to 12. Day-of tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 2 to 12. Children ages 1 and under are free. Tickets are available for purchase at fairytaletown.org.

The title sponsor of the event is Crystal Ice Cream. Additional sponsors include Mix 96 Radio and KVIE Public Television.
