Saturday filled the Fairelands to the brim on several occasions as the word had spread out of the wonders and entertainment available in the Faire.
In Sapphire Mirror Lake there were four stunning dance and particle shows: The ChangHigh Sisters “Fantasy Fire Show”, Shadows Silhouettes “Born on the Bayou”, The Night Theater “Fairytales Told” and Mahal “Freedom”.
Roleplayers continued to puzzle out their mysteries: there were stories of Echtra shared, warnings ignored in Sanctuary’s story in Dangarnon and the Great Alliance issued the first challenge for the Suitors for the Queen.
The Literary Festival held Region Tours to Lucentia and Twilight Illusion, Poets’ Plunder with Klannex Northmead, Coldshot Players modernised version of The Tempest and Tall Tales of Pirates with Ceejay Writer.
The highlight of the day was A Midsummer Night’s Dream Performance by the Fairelands Players. Saturday had been declared Shakespeare Day to mark the 400th anniversary of the passing of William Shakespeare. To celebrate this event Fantasy Faire Radio and the Literary Festival produced a version of the play that still today is the foundation of many fantasy concepts and stereotypes. The whole play was livestreamed by AviewTV so that the people who did not fit in the audience could still see the performance.
The play was followed by a fae parade where a continuously growing procession of unruly faes stormed from one Faireland to another, dancing their way through them all to the tunes of DJ Gemstone Sunkiller.
The other parties were held in the dragon ship FaireChylde with the help of DJs Zander Greene, Nyza Stillwater and Lord of the Lamas, who kept the Faire Folk dancing until Saturday slowly shifted into Sunday, promising another busy day!
