When the Fairies Came to Town
May First Fridays in Putnam CT
Playing dress up is always a fun way to express myself artistically. finding opportunities to get into costume well, that’s for another post. Putnam, CT has First Fridays from May through October so for six months I can get my need for dress-up based on whatever the theme might be for that particular month. May 2018 there were two themes first one was Poland. the local restaurants served up a menu rich in polish delicacies, bands played polish culture inspired music, and the second theme was Fairy Gardens. several shops displayed tiny fairy gardens in their windows and art vendors sold fairy wands, crowns and wings. the event always encourages the public to come dressed up to these events.
while walking around in costume as an elder garden fairy a reporter for the Norwich Bulletin asked if she could interview me and of course, I said yes. follow the link to see what she had to say.
