MILWAUKEE – Whether fairy or wizard, princess or Prince Charming, everyone is invited to come in costume to Very Fairy Princess Day, April 14 from 9 a.m.–4 p.m., at The Domes, 524 S. Layton Blvd.

The magical day includes visiting with characters from popular fairy tales, listening to The Fairy Godmother read her favorite stories, and going on a scavenger hunt. Face painters and a balloon-twister will add finishing touches to the day. A fairy-garden craft is available for $10 each. The event is included in regular admission to The Domes.

New this year will be The Royal Tea Party, a separate ticketed event for children age 3 and up. At the event, children will learn about royal table etiquette, participate in sing-a-longs with fairy-tale characters, make-and-take a craft, and have their photos taken with a princess. Delectables at the tea party include cupcakes, light snacks, and apple juice (in place of tea). In addition to the make-and-take craft, each child attending the tea party will get to take home a tea cup and the printed photo of their time with the princesses.

As of this writing, a limited number of tickets for the hour-long Royal Tea Party are available for the 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. time slots. The earlier time slot has sold out. The fee to attend the Royal Tea Party is the cost of regular admission to The Domes plus the cost of the Royal Ticket ($20 per child). Advance purchase of the Royal Tickets is available online.

Creating the backdrop for this fairy-dust day is the spring floral show, Shakespeare in Love. To bring the language of flowers to life, the pastel-tinted displays feature scroll-shaped signs with quotes from Shakespeare that relate to the nearby flowers. There will be rosemary, that’s for remembrance, and pansies, that’s for thoughts. In addition to these flowers mentioned in Hamlet, there will be thyme and violets from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and daffodils and lavender from A Winter’s Tale. Also carpeting the Show Dome will be hydrangeas, tulips, and Easter lilies, to name a few.

Very Fairy Princess Day and the Shakespeare in Love spring floral show are included in regular admission to The Domes. Regular admission fees range from $6 to $8. When presenting IDs for proof of status, Milwaukee County residents, students of all ages, and people with disabilities receive discounted admission. Children age 5 and under are admitted free.
