The 2024 Enchanted Garden Family Festival transforms our Historic Spanish Point campus into a magical land where Mother Nature and gnomes roam the 30-acre native landscape. This year’s festival features Unicorn Rides, Cookie Crafts, Butterfly & Fairy Wand Crafts, Sidewalk Chalk, Story Telling, Face Painting & Balloon Twisting. Join us on Sunday for a Special Bubble Show Performance by Blaise Ryndes with Spheres Entertainment!
