Enchanted Forest:

Do you believe in fairies? Experience the magic of make believe and imagination as you search high and low for hidden fairy doors in the Enchanted Forest. Read a story about the fairy that lives behind each magical door.  The good luck gnomes will be hiding throughout the park as they watch over and protect the creatures that live there.

Fairytale Lane:

Make your way down Fairytale Lane to the Sholom Park pergebo where you will find our very own Fairy Godmother. Experience enchanting tales and fantastical stories of fairies, gnomes and other mythical creatures.



Whimsical World:

Let your fairy tale fantasies come to life in the Whimsical World of Fantasy. Meet unicorns, Lily and Lancelot, or get up close to Skippy the Dragon, a 20-foot-long smoke breathing dragon.

Magical Marketplace:

Magical merchants will be selling mystical merchandise, whimsical services, and fantastical fares. Shop for handmade trinkets, jewelry, art and more with local merchants.
