Princes, princesses, pirates invited to Fairy Tale Ball

TERRE HAUTE — Come one, come all to the third annual Fairy Tale Ball from 6 to 9 p.m. on April 26 in the Terre Haute Children’s Museum.

Princes, princesses, pirates and fairies of all ages, along with their adult chaperones, are invited to the evening of magical experiments, enchanted crafts, mystical activities and villainous snacks, sponsored by Duke Energy, Wal-Mart and Simple to Elegant.

Participants are encouraged to don their favorite character costume and explore fantasy lands throughout the museum.

Guests at the dance in the Royal Palace will have their faces painted by The Fundazzlers and make crowns with help from Miss ISU and several other local royals.

At the Pirate Adventure guests will walk the plank and find the lost pirate gold.

During a trip through the Enchanted Forest, travelers will make a shield with their family crest and then put their archery skills to the test as they hunt for villains.

All are invited to join the Wizard from SciOnTheFly in the theater for a show and a snack.

This year’s Fairy Tale Ball will feature a visit from Mother Nature and a belated Earth Day celebration. Special fun facts and crafts will help guests appreciate nature and learn ways to protect the environment.

Cost to attend the Fairy Tale Ball is $5 for museum members and $10 for non-members. Tickets are required for all attendees age 2 and older. Tickets are limited and can be bought before the event at the museum admission desk.

Member ticket price applies to the number of people listed on each membership. The regular pricing will apply for any additional tickets. Special event tickets are non-refundable.

The museum is at the corner of Eighth Street and Wabash Avenue.
