The Second Annual Faerie Gathering brings a variety of activities to downtown Farmington businesses Feb. 14-16.
Event organizers invite everyone to look for faeries in and around the following events:
Faerie Door Scavenger Hunts for adults and children
Players will follow directions on a play card to find faerie doors at participating merchants and collect clues that will lead them to the next door. With three days to complete the scavenger hunt, players have time to browse and shop along the way. Completed play cards will be entered into a drawing for prize baskets. Players who spend $25 in participating shops will be entered into a drawing for a second prize basket.
