The Delmarva Education Foundation is partnering with two other local non-profit organization’s with the shared goal of helping children succeed in school and life are working together to hold the first Tales & Trails literary fair at the Hazel Outdoor Discovery Center in Eden. The event, which is being organized by DEF, Horizons at the Salisbury School and Kids of Honor, will be held on Saturday, May 11 from 12 to 4 p.m.
This one-of-a-kind event will bring to life literary scenes and characters on two half-mile trails, similar to a haunted hayride. At each stop along the trail, a school or community group will perform a short skit pulled from a well-known tale. This year’s theme is “Fairy” Tales & Trails, so all skits must come from fairytales or similar stories, such as Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, etc.
Any school, community group or organization is welcome to prepare and perform a skit. Groups are also welcome to set up an informational table or offer other activities with a fairytale theme (such as Robin Hood’s archery or sewing crafts with Sleeping Beauty) on the main activity area. There will be food, a bonfire for toasting marshmallows, and lots of other fun activities.
There is no charge for schools, groups or organizations to participate in this event. To get your group involved in “Fairy Tales & Trails, call the Delmarva Education Foundation at 410-219-3336.
