Did you miss the annual Fairy House Tour? No worries, come next week!

Today's Fairy House Walking Tour  through the Hollywood district was full of magical architecture, Fairy tales and Pixie Dust. We even discovered a few homes that weren't on the map!
Because so many people couldn't make the weekday tour, we've added another one next Saturday morning, August 22nd, from 10am-noon.
(And I've redrawn the map to include even more homes!)
This year's map lists more than 27 Fairy dwellings, in about a 10 block radius around Camp Cactus Studio.
 What better way to spend the last Saturday of summer vacation?
The tour is open to all ages, but you must be able to walk a fair distance (about a mile in all).
Children are free with an accompanying (paying) adult.
I hope you can join us for this very special and magical event.
If we're lucky, we may even see a Fairy or two!

Saturday, August 22nd   10 am - noon                   $25 
(discounts for multiple attendees)
All ages.  Please note: Children under 6 must be accompanied by a paying adult. 

Meet at Camp Cactus Studio, 4458 NE Brazee.
 The tour will begin at 10:15. See you there!

Fairy House Tour and other wonders…coming right up!

Get ready for the Fourth Annual Hollywood Fairy House Tour! Join us on Thursday, August 13th for a fun guided tour of quaint and magical homes located in the neighborhood surrounding the studio. Once again, the Fairies have been busy building in front yards, trees and under bushes all over Hollywood, and we'll supply you with a map and stories about the Fairy families who live in these homes.
Here's a photo of a house on a previous year's tour. The tour is open to ages 6 and up, but you must be able to walk a fair distance (about a mile in all).
Children under six are free with an accompanying (paying) adult.
I hope you can join us for this very special and magical event. If we're lucky, we may even see a Fairy or two!
