Enchanted elves and fairies galore at Sensational Kids event in Johnstown

A volunteer 'fairy' and some of the kids enjoying last year's event

Sensational Kids will host this year’s Enchanted Elf Fairy Festival at Palmerstown House Estate, Johnstown, on Sunday September 11 from 11am to 6pm.

Described by organisers as a family fun day like you have never seen before, it promises to be a great day out in aid of a good cause with a little bit of magic thrown in.

There will be Fairy door trails, Chillout gardens, Bouncy castles and slides, play area and face painting

There will be stories with fairy queen; plus a chance to leave a dodie at The Dodie tree and all your worries with The Worry tree. Children can meet fairies and elves and join in on a treasure hunt on the day.

All proceeds from the event go towards providing intervention for children of all abilities, including those with special needs to help them reach their potential.

Last year’s festival was held in the National Stud and was hailed as a great success raising over €20,000 for its occupational and speech and language services.

Over 2000 people including fairies, elves, princesses and superheroes made their way to the National Stud and Gardens on Saturday September 5 last for the day. Tickets cost €25 for the Early Bird Family Admission for 2 adults with up to 4 children under 16 available until the end of June 2016. After that the family ticket will cost €30. Child Admission €10 Adult Admission €15 Tickets are available to purchase online.
