June 6, 2012 |

A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Crystal Ice Cream Fantasy, Fairytale Town’s popular fairy-themed fundraiser and ice cream social, will return on Saturday, June 9 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s famous play, this enchanting evening features nonstop entertainment for the whole family, including costumed performers, fanciful arts and crafts activities, live music, food and all the Crystal Ice Cream one can eat.

Celtic-rock band Tempest will perform throughout the evening. Since forming in 1988, the band has won rave reviews for their musical hybrid of high-energy folk rock with Irish reels, Scottish ballads, Norwegian influences and other world music elements. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the act has released 15 critically acclaimed albums and played more than 2,000 gigs.

Multiple arts and crafts activities will be stationed throughout the park, and old-time vendors will be on hand to offer their traditional wares.

Guests can also sample different Crystal Ice Cream flavors throughout the evening. Costumes for the entire family are strongly encouraged.

John Frisch, regional managing director at Cornish and Carey, and Monica Woods, News 10′s chief meteorologist, will serve as the evening’s hosts and honorary king and queen.

Taking on the roles of Oberon and Titania, the king and queen of the fairies in Shakespeare’s play, Frisch and Woods will kick off the event and greet guests. Mix 96′s Jennifer Wood will emcee the event.

“The Shakespeare-inspired festivities combined with Fairytale Town’s playful environment makes A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Crystal Ice Cream Fantasy an event that adults and children will enjoy,” said Marci Reynolds, event chairwoman and Fairytale Town board member. “The event brings all ages together in support of the park and its programs and improvements.”

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

Proceeds from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Crystal Ice Cream Fantasy support Fairytale Town’s programs and park improvements.

Fairytale Town is located at 3901 Land Park Drive in Sacramento.
