A free tea party for children and adults of all ages featuring the Dogwood Fairies is one of the events that will take place Saturday and Sunday at the annual Dogwood Festival’s Art Under the Elms. There will be 10 tea parties – five each day – with a maximum of 30 persons at each party. Raspberry iced tea and other treats will be served at the tea by the Dogwood Fairies. Pictures are allowed during the tea parties and some of the fairies will be available after the parties for pictures with the children. The tea party is part of the Family Fun Fair and will be located on the lawn in front of Reid Hall. Because seating is limited, there will be signup sheets where the tea party is being held. Signups can be for the next available party or for open party on a first-come basis. Adults are also invited to the party, but must sign up as well. Each tea will last for approximately 30 minutes.
The fairies will be dressed in costume for the parties.
