On March 22nd, the Pagan Pathways Temple is going to be presenting its Carnival of Wonders at the Hazel Park Recreation Center, in celebration of the time of Ostara. They invite you to welcome the Earth's rebirth and the reawakening of the joy of the Wheel's turn.
They have a full array of entertaining activities for celebrants of all ages including:
- Slot Drop
- Bean Bag Toss
- Balloon Pop
- Find the Queen
- Ring Toss
- Egg Floats for Adults and Children
There will also be a Blessing of Seeds at 4:00 pm. Attendees are welcome to bring their own seeds for the rite, or donate some to event. Seed Blessings are Traditional at this time of year.
Additional activities include a Chinese Raffle, and other surprises. Photo opportunities for those who bring cameras will include furry characters and Pinkie Pie the pony. The event is constantly evolving, so it is a good idea to frequently check the event for updates.
Admission is $3.00 for adults and free for children. Remember, though, that all children must be accompanied by an adult.
This event is part of the ongoing fundraising efforts of the Temple for its building fund.
