On Sunday morning, eager children and adults formed massive lines to enter the metro-area’s first-ever Unicorn Festival. There wasn’t a parking spot to be found anywhere around in Littleton’s Robert F. Clement Park.
“The crowds here are so much bigger than we anticipated,” said founder Dana Cain, who gave a brief interview before disappearing into the glittery crowd.
Festivalgoers young and old were treated to a litany of magic inside the fairgrounds. Princesses, princes, fairies and at least one wizard could be seen floating through the crowds. A mermaid bay, a Quidditch pitch, sword fights and a dragon completed the scene.
“I hope they find it a very magical, uplifting place,” Cain said. To be sure, this reporter witnessed multiple children in princess costumes become glowing beams of sunlight when they met fairy tale idols.
