From Ronnie Sharpe of Ronnie’s Awesome List:

Families are invited to experience the magic of this year’s Garden Faire at Edna Maguire Elementary School on Sunday, April 26, from 12 to 4 p.m. Parking and admission for the annual fundraiser for the Mill Valley Children’s Garden are free. Tickets for activities and food can be purchased at the event, credit cards accepted.

Garden fairies will be on hand to help guests enjoy favorite crafts and games, such as fairy house building, creating potions, wreath making, and bobbing for apples. Other activities will include face painting, hair extensions, and henna tattoos. DJ Taylor Fogelquist will fill the air with bewitching music while an array of eateries will serve up fresh, delicious local food.

Still hungry? Join in the pie-eating contest, back by popular demand! We’re also bringing back another crowd-pleasing favorite: the Edna Maguire Bake-Off. Our panel of celebrity judges will choose the winners, who will score fabulous prizes, such as a gift certificate for Vasco’s Restaurant, Juice Girl or Milvali Salon. To enter the Bake-Off, contact Coleen at coleenbyrne@hotmail.com.

NEW this year, Edna Maguire’s third grade Brownie troop is distributing milkweed seed packets and seedlings critical to the survival of monarch butterflies. Learn how to create a Monarch Migration Waystation to help assure the preservation of the species and the continuation of the spectacular monarch migration.

One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the Mill Valley Children’s Garden. For festival information, call 415-389-7733 or visit ednamaguire.org.
