The second Sunday of the Faire is always the last official day of programmed events, and the date shown on all the posters as the last day of the Faire. Experienced Fairelanders know better though: our Linden Overlords tend to get captured by the Fairelands Watch, and also tend to bribe their way into freedom with more Faire days!
This happened this year as well, and the Fairelands will be open for shopping, questing and exploring through May 7th!
The second Saturday of the Faire is always amazingly busy as the Fairelands provide all the entertainment they possibly can before the official program ends. Good thing we have an amazing medic team ready to help paw-blistered busy critters all over: nothing that duct tape, bubblewrap and lollis don’t fix!
Friday always opens the weekend celebrities as the Fairelanders can almost taste the upcoming busy event schedule. Being the second Friday of this year’s Faire, it also brought with it the realization that the official program and events will end in just a couple of days, and there’s still so much to see!
Fortunately the Fairelands will stay open until May 7th, so at least the exploration, shopping and questing do not have to be rushed. (Thank you, Benevolent Linden Overlords!)
Thursday arrived with a sudden realization that there’s just a few days left! There was panic, flailing, and hasty attempts to build a time-machine out of Erstwhile ships and Sanoria artifacts, glued together with syrup from Tiny Town. In the midst of all this worry came Her High Faireness with soothing words: the Fairelands would stay open for a whole week longer than first planned!
Wednesday awakened Fairelanders with a start: middle of the week! Time to catch all the events and make sure you’re not missing anything! Backpacks full of caffeinated snacks (for when the drinks don’t cut it anymore) and detailed plans for the day (to be thrown away at the first distraction) everyone was ready to embark back into the Fairelands!
Tuesday morning smelled of coffee, croissants, wootberry juice and just a whiff of incense in the morning breeze, like a promise of things to come. The Fairelanders packed their daily survival gear in the various forms of caffeine and snacks, made sure their Teleport HUDs were at hand, that emergency pixie GPS system was online and that party outfits were well chosen in advance. Then it was time to head out for another adventurous day in the Fairelands!
Somewhere in the Mundane, Monday is considered a dreary, terrible thing. Not so in the Fairelands! The whole day seemed like a continuous chain of parties and entertainment and Faire-flavored pieces of pure nutterness. (It is a word now.)
