Located in the woods near Magnolia, Texas (west of Houston), the festival occurs over eight weekends - each with a different theme ranging from Barbarian Invasion, Magical Dreams (faeries, elves and magick like that), Pirate Adventure, etc. from October to November.
The best and most fun way to experience this festival is going dressed up; it makes it three zillion times more fun. The experience is a magical, other-worldly treat.
My costume can be summed up as a little-girl-faerie-princess-spirit-dream-come-true.
The festival is going strong in it's 40th year!
