Spring has sprung and Beltane is upon us! To celebrate, the city is hosting a week-long Beltane Open Air Festival! Check in for events, vendors, arts & crafts, activities, street performers, games, and sporting events. All events are taking place in Elsewhere Park unless otherwise noted.

((All of these events are vapored save for those with notes otherwise. This is designed to be similar to how Fashion Week works. Feel free to make posts including what your character is wearing, what events they are attending, and what they are doing during the week.

Check out the image board here))


Vendors/Booths/Events: All Week Long

Le Carnaval de la Vie (Monday-Friday; 12 PM to 2 AM)

'Special-teas' by Panacea
Selling fresh flower garlands and crowns, seeds for your every need, and Aoife Duggan's specialty tea blends.

Faerie Fusion
Faerie style cuisine made by Nina, the owner of Faerie Fusion in Little Elfhame.

wisp #6.1: Hats Off to Beltane!
Andressa Sugimoto Moraes and the rest of the wisp crew will be bringing back some of their limited edition hats and caps from past wisp collections, as well as an exclusive baseball cap dedicated to Beltane!

WestEnd Medical Services
The clinic’s festival booth will be open throughout the week staffed at all times with a medical professional including regular visits from founding doctor, Eva Luna. Staff will be available to answer questions on all medical topics including those particularly germane to the Beltane festival such as interspecies safe sex or how to avoid unwanted love spells and potions. The booth will also be offering free condoms and contraception, drug safety checks, and bottled non-Rhy’Din water.

Feygarten
The beer hall and garden will be serving a mix of local standards, crafts beers, and foreign spirits in their booth for the week. There are picnic tables around the booth for those who want to sit, enjoy, and watch passing entertainers while they drink.

Face Painting
From the simple to the elaborate, face painting. And face painting how-to.

Matadero Meats
Pig roast, ribs, and pulled pork.

PUBLIC: an Art Gallery
Festival attendees are invited to join PUBLIC in a Beltane-themed art project! Several local artists will be on hand to demonstrate and guide participants in a paper-cutting art project, including a kid-friendly option. Participants can choose from flower, fish, or butterfly patterns in a multitude of colors. For a suggested donation of three coppers, the resulting project can be enchanted to bring the paper flower, fish, or butterfly to life for the duration of the Beltane festival. All proceeds will be matched and donated to the Rhy’Din Artists Collective. In addition, the booth will feature paper art by the on-hand artists available for purchase.

Upcycling For Home and Fun
Along with a few demonstrations, and a couple of hands on projects, pamphlets are available. Each pamphlet has 222 glossy photos, and step-by-step instructions on the projects shown, as well as tips and pointers for branching out. Projects: suitcase table, orange rind oil lamp, paper roses; paint sample clock; pillowcase garment bags; wine, or booze bottle chandelier; denim bangles; tee shirt skirt; globe bowl; cool tee bag; book page garland.

Container Gardening for Small Spaces
From pallets transformed into a pick-as-you-go salad, to soda bottles arranged as rain chains, to ninety-nine cent store flip flops and margarine tubs wrapped in twine. From just a few herbs in a window box, to a forest of edible vegetation, this hands-in-the-dirt how-to with easy to remember and follow instructions and ideas can really get the juices going.

Hair Braiding Booth
Grace Cassidy of Hair or Dye Salon in the Marketplace will be setting up a Hair Braiding booth.

My Blooming Head
Hear ye, Hear ye! Come one, Come all! Be sure to stop by Matilda's 'My Blooming Head' booth and learn how to create a floral hair wreath for Beltane! Not artistic you say? No worries! Once again Matilda will be selling beautiful pre-made head wreaths for men, women and children during the Open Air Festival!

Special hand fasting and/or wedding head wreaths and bouquets also available!

Cost: Accepting donations of any amount. All proceeds go to the Rhy'Din Fire Brigade!

Bandages and Bottles
Stop by the booth for a wonderful (and somewhat strange) assortment of items. Bandages and Bottles will be your one-stop-shop for just about anything you can think of: mundane items, gag and prank items, pets, pet supplies, trinkets, rings, weapons, armor, miscellaneous magic items, potions, candy, brews, and food. Check out the full list of items available at the booth!

Kites
Ebon and the Stardreamer fosterlings (the older ones, at least) will be selling paper kites. There will be pre-made kites available as well as the materials for people to make (and fly!) their own.

Make Your Own Flower Jewelry Workshop
Hosted by Flora and Blossom from The Salon at Little Elfhame. The ladies will be teaching a workshop on how to make fashion accessories from freshly cut flowers for people to wear to the festivities on Sunday and Saturday.

Horse/Pony Rides
Governor Ebon is offering horse and pony rides, courtesy of the stables at Stardreamer Manor.

Orchids
Eregor will have epiphytic orchid "air plant" baskets available for sale in a myriad variety of colors.


Wind Chimes
Hephaestus will be selling hanging wind chimes and clockwork flowers.


Glassware
Ciarth Whitemane will have handcrafted glasses and goblets available, with images of trees, flames, or fairy wings etched in the glass.

Wandering Musicians
Velen and Doran Ilnaren will be wandering the festival playing tunes, with the former on guitar/vocal and Doran playing a tin-whistle flute.

Weddings by Wendy
Wendy of the Multiverse Chapel will be available all week long at the festival for any weddings or handfastings. Missed your chance Sunday night? Worry not! Wendy has you covered.

On Sunday, the redneck definitely joined the festivities.

Barefeet in the greening grass, she danced 'round the May Pole with everyone else, her sunny smile and warming laughter unrestrained and merry.



The evening saw her at the Fires, celebrating in her way with wicked delight.

Monday, she made the most of the afternoon in one trip, and one stop. The Kissing Booth. The Empress' endeavor for helping those youths who fall through the many cracks in Rhy'din is one very near and dear to Thorn's heart. As such, the woman paid her coin (quite a lot of it) and took her place in line.

When it was her turn she gave a back-room smile and leaned in. Let the tips of the fingers of her left hand rest, soft as a butterfly's breath at the hinge of Jewell's jaw and kissed her. Far from chaste, the kiss brought to mind the slow, tantalizing sip of a favored wine from a gem encrusted chalice. Savoring and deep and thorough. Tender and cherishing. With no aggression or possession. Hints and half-made promises. Smoke and building heat.

At their parting, she pressed the tip of her tongue to her own lips, as though to seal the fae woman's taste to her skin and memory.

With a wink and another of those smiles, she wandered off to the PUBLIC booth.

Jewell--Sunday

Jewell stopped by the festival mid-afternoon. She had some body painting done in a light silver across her skin for the fire lighting ceremony that evening. She opted to skip the May Pole event.

Instead, she did some shopping around the festival, stopping by 'Special-teas' by Panacea, the wisp booth, My Blooming Head (buying a garland for Sapphire), Bandages and Bottles, and the windchimes booth for some decorations for her patio. Jewell made sure to wander by WestEnd Medical Services to try and see Eva (and maybe tease her with questions about the interspecies safe sex brochures).

Then she headed home to get ready for tonight’s Fire Lighting ceremony.

Jewell--Monday

Jewell didn’t arrive at Elsewhere Park until early afternoon after over-indulging at last night’s festivities. She caught one performance of the Fire Whip Sword Show and had lunch with Sapphire at the Matadero Meats booth.

Then it was on to the Kissing Booth run by the Kids of Summer Foundation. Only intending to stay an hour, Jewell ended up staying much longer. Her time at the booth included an incredibly knee-weakening kiss from Thorn!

When Kal showed up, she made him pay for a kiss too before dragging him off to dinner (supposedly) and a trip to Le Carnaval de la Vie for the evening.

Monday. May 2, 2016.

Eye witness reports claim to have seen an elusive Salvador Delahada stopping by to watch the Fire Whip Sword Show, and reportedly holding up a horrifically bedazzled phone to record some video with. In his possession was also a giant stuffed dragon, won from the Carnaval de la Vie, which he was reported to have been seen carrying off to the east of the city.

Later he was spotted checking in on the Matadero Meats booth to grab some ribs to-go and see how things were going before heading back to the carnival.

Monday, May 2nd - Layna


After a successful night of having come home from the Fire Lighting Ceremony without her mother finding out, Elena was able to enjoy the day walking around visiting the various booths set up around town. She bought a flower crown from Panacea's booth, spent a great deal of time at the falconer's show, and dreamily watched several hand-fasting ceremonies.

Monday, May 2nd



Scrambling to get there on time after a most unforgettable Beltane at the Fire-Lighting Ceremony, Grace arrived with her own newly-aqua locks pulled up in an elaborately braided style. She immediately got to work representing Hair or Dye Salon in the Braiding Bar Tent.



Though she spent most of the day crafting gorgeous braids for the Festival Goers, Grace was able to slip away for a little while to check out some of the other booths. She picked up some delicious smelling tea from Panacea, picked up lunch from Matadero Meats and even stole a little time to make herself some flower jewelry with Flora and Blossom.

As day faded into night, Grace met up with a certain Gypsy [not]King to catch, among other things, the Paper Lantern Send-off at Carnaval de la Vie.

May 2nd!

Dris missed the crowning of the May Queen in favor of having his own private celebrations at home, but he did not miss out on the fun and festivities of the following day!

First and foremost, he stopped in at Panacea to sample some of Aoife's 'Special-teas' and drop off a bag of glitter just for her. Then he swept by wisp to get himself a hat or two, because hats!

He took every opportunity to see all the entertainment on the docket for the day, then swung by the Kissing Booth, because of course he did. It's entirely possible that his entire outfit was put together at the Costume Craft Stall, and if so he's not ashamed to admit it. He probably started the rumor himself.

In high spirits, he marched off to the Carnaval de la Vie to show his kind-of-sort-of-but-not-really-step-son-in-law and friend Canaan Devillier his support for his new enterprise.

On Tuesday the redneck skipped and danced her way 'round the Festival after dropping off her entry for the baking contest.

A simple dessert fitting for the day and Season:


Candied Violets on a Lemon Poppyseed cake.

With great enjoyment she visited the Costume Craft Stall to play at putting together a head-dress and wing ensemble. Probably wound up inciting a glitter/doo-dad/decoration fight, and definitely hung around to handle the clean up.

When evening came, she headed for Twilight Isle to watch the Tournament.

(Cake recipe found here: http://www.sacredmists.com/free-beltane-recipes.html )

Tuesday!



With two of her children grown and moved out of the house, another on the cusp of womanhood (and wanting very much to spend as little time around her mother as possible), Charlotte was left with only Megan as her companion for the day. And what better way to spend it than to visit town for the festivities?

The mother/daughter duo woke up bright and early to bake some treats for the contest (blackberry and cherry pies, respectively) and after delivering them for judging, spent the rest of the day walking around.

They got their lunch from Matadero's booth, then buzzed like bees on over to get their faces painted, hair braided, and rounded out the afternoon with a pony ride for the ten year old.

Tuesday. May 3, 2016.

Two public appearances in a row in a single week! What is the world coming to!? That's right. Throughout the day, Salvador Delahada was spotted visiting a couple of vendors and booths and things in Elswhwere Park. Just a few.

Today he dropped in on the wisp booth to pick up one of the Beltane exclusive ball caps. Again he checked in on the Matadero Meats stall, but he did not leave with any food. He did not linger long here, being rumored to spend most of his time that day at the Carnaval de la Vie instead.

May 3rd!

Some people have purse dogs. Dris has a bird he carries tucked under his arm. On the second day of Beltane, he was seen strolling through Elsewhere Park with his best crow Handel in his company.

The very first thing our dear bard did was stop by the Panacea stall again for some of Aoife's special-tea. He also picked up a collection of flower crowns, many in number. Afterward, he swung by the Feygarten to drink! He hopped on at least one of the Hay Rides, possibly more, and stopped by the Baking Contest just to get a whiff of what was good.

He and Handel were seen pausing to watch and applaud all the various entertainers. At one point he even challenged the jugglers to a juggle-off, taking part in the show himself. Once he'd exhausted himself on all the fun to be had here, he and his crow were seen heading off to the Carnaval de la Vie.

Tuesday, May 3



Today, Grace rocked a slightly more casual braid of her own while manning the Hair or Dye Braiding Bar. Making a point to celebrate all of Beltane's Festival Goers, she managed to coax and cajole several fellas into her blue tent today.





On her breaks, she checked out the Gypsy Dance Theater, stopping to watch several of her friends from the Barlow Caravan perform and cheer them on.

Grace also spent a little time learning about Upcycling, taking a handful of the pamphlets back with her to share with the rest of the Family, and also Container Gardening. Both skills were great fun to explore, and seemed super useful for the Camp! For food she had to check out Faerie Fusion, making a mental note to visit the actual restaurant sometime soon.

Though her nights were busy with the Spring Gala, Josie made sure to stop by the festivities to visit the Shanachie's Costume Craft Stall to show her support for the hard working ladies in the costume department. Without their dedication and tireless hard work, the shows at the theater could not possibly come to life in such a beautiful way. Before her visit was over, they made sure she did not leave without a flower head piece and a pair of wings!

Wednesday--Jewell & Sapphire

Sapphire and Jewell joined the mud wrestling competition in the morning before going home, cleaning up, and returning to Elsewhere Park. They watched the Belly Dancers and got picked on by the Jester. They bought orchids and got their hair braided by Grace Cassidy of Hair or Dye Salon. They grabbed a bite to eat at Feygarten and then enjoyed drinking so much, they forgot about berry picking.

Later, they went to Le Carnaval de la Vie to catch the Vivant Showcase (they wouldn’t miss Lirssa!). Sapphire guilted her into going on a few rides too before Jewell took off to attend Diamond Days.

Thorn showed up bright and early to put her name down for the mud wrestling. In between bouts she cheered in a bright, spirited manner for the other competitors. During her bouts she wound up an unabashed muddy mess, and loved every moment of it.



Later, after a very thorough shower, she picked up her pail and a map and headed out berry picking. Truth be told however, she probably ate more berries than wound up in her pot.

Wednesday morning found Claire hitting up the hair braiding booth before setting out with the kids to go berry picking which more than likely all got eaten on the way back. After that, they went to the Vivant Showcase at the Carnaval de la Vie.

Wednesday, May 4




Dressed more "gypsy" than either of the days before, Grace was delighted to see Jewel, Sapphire, Claire and Claire's adorable twins, and Eden
in the booth today.

It seemed like a lot of people were getting dressed up for the Vivant Showcase at Carnaval de la Vie this afternoon, so Grace found herself putting together some more elaborate braids for the occasion.



On her break, she stopped by the Facepainting Booth to have a butterfly added to her cheek, and My Blooming Head to get some pretty red flowers for her hair. She also bought a couple of kites for the Camp Kids.

Then she met up with Mark to go take in the Vivant Showcase for themselves. After all the buzz she'd heard from the day's patrons, Grace couldn't wait to see what all the fuss was about!

Lucy had been attending the Beltane Open Air Festival every day, but it was only on Wednesday that she finally got to enjoy it for herself, reassured that everything was up and running smoothly at the PUBLIC booth.

She went first to Panacea's booth to buy herself a flower crown, before perusing the hats on offer at wisp.

She heard a rumor that Thorn was participating in the mud wrestling so she headed on over to watch, cheering for her (while staying as far from the mud as she could) and laughing more than she had recently.

Reginald the ghost was with her through most of the afternoon until she returned to the PUBLIC booth to finally enjoy the crafting there. She went with simple white paper for her cutting of a butterfly, and then remained at the booth to help some of the children with their colorful fish, flower, and butterfly projects.

Another day of Beltane, another day of sneaking out of work early!

Her first stop was to Grace's braiding booth to get her hair done, SO PRETTY! She could barely keep still for the braiding but she loved the finish product.

Next it was on to Panacea to get herself a flower crown which she promptly bobby pinned into place so it wouldn't fall off while she went bouncing around.

She happened to just be in time to see the Shanachie Theater Company's Chorus flash mob, her eyes wide and excited!

Then after eating her way through the rest of the Festival, she headed on over towards Carnaval to catch the Showcase!

An excuse to spend time in the sun and Spring air surrounded by green things and wild flowers? Thursday saw Thorn doing just that for a time. She had a mind to use her produce for garland making the next day.

Beside her through the day, stolen for a break in her training, was an auburn haired young woman of indeterminate age. Dia's deep blue eyes took everything in and her slow, lopsided smile was very much in evidence as they went through the festivities. Even the flower picking; her mentor kept explaining the need for Balance though she was too young to fully understand it yet.




Later, after visiting the hair braiding booth, she took her place at a time with a group of the other competitors for the pie eating contest. Dia was right beside her, and between them they made an unholy mess and filled the air with laughter and hiccoughs.
