Fairies gathered for the third year Lavender Fairy Festival at Steed & Company Lavender on Saturday. They have come each year, rain or shine, to learn about the Lavender Fairy, to parade and to take part in activities and fun related to fairy lore. This year's sunny skies brought more fairies (and pirates) than ever, along with a special guest.
