The cost is $5 per child and registration must be completed by August 5. Online registration is encouraged and is available here. Each registered child will receive a medal and be entered into a drawing for additional prizes.

Build a Fairy & Gnome Home: During the week of August 3-10, children can go to Weidner Park in their free time to look for small painted rocks scattered around the park. Near each painted rock there will be natural building materials like sticks, pgnome & fairy rocksinecones and pebbles. Children can use these materials provided as well as other items they find or bring themselves to create a “tiny home” at the location for a special W.C. fairy or gnome family.

Once the home is built, take a photo and send it to Tslonaker@westcarrollton.org or submit the photo online here.

Please do not remove any painted rocks as multiple homes can be built near the same rock. Be courteous of other’s creations.
