Creative Minds Meet in Downtown Binghamton NY

6 Jun

I stopped into Imagicka today in downtown Binghamton – have you been? You need to go. It’s like stepping into a breathtaking fantasy world. Anyway, while I was there, I was shamelessly plugging my business (and I’ll do it again and I mentioned to one of the guys that I couldn’t wait to go to the faery festival this year. He responded that there was a lot left to do to get ready. I asked if he had a hand in it. He responded that he was the creative director for the whole weekend.


I spent the next ten minutes telling him how much we enjoyed all his hard work. I mean, look what he can do:


That’s just a taste of some of the amazing stuff he’s put together. He hires real actors to this event, and he believes that the “show” must involve everyone. He loved hearing my stories about the people in costume interacting with my kids and how my kids became part of the entertainment. We weren’t even in costume – we had on our shorts and tee’s. Every actor pulls the crowd into the show. He really beamed when I told him how happy I was that my son signed the “Faery Proclamation” to rid the town of goblins.

My daughter made me snap a lot of pictures of this beauty:


She is the Faery Queen and she makes appearances at festivals all over the country. If the kids are lucky, they might get a magical faery ring from her. Look closely; there just might be something extra special about the ring from the New York Faery Festival. She is shrouded in mystery and she is always trying to guard the Land of the Faery from the nasty goblins. She is quite special – she’s the only person who rides into the joust on a one-of-a-kind unicorn!

If you’re in New York on the weekend of June 28 to June 30, you really need to head out to the festival. It’s not that far off Exit 79 on Route 17. Everyone should enjoy all the hard work and eye-popping artistic talents of the man I met in Imagicka. You can grab all the details here: and let me know you’re coming! Maybe we can meet up and find some magic together.
