Community Festivals

Michaelmas 2014!

Join us for our annual Michaelmas festival, celebrated this year on Friday, September 26th, 2014 beginning at 5:00p.m.
with optional

picnic time,
followed by the pageant play and bonfire.

This much beloved community festival features a pageant of shooting stars, gnomes, happy villagers and, of course, the Michaelmas Dragon! (Parents of very young children should be apprised that the dragon "eats" a villager, who is, later, fully restored...Please make your own decision about the appropriateness of your attendance and the sensitivities of your child to the dragon, the drums, etc.)

Michaelmas is, ultimately, a festival of Courage wherein we look to our own hearts and lives to face our own "dragons" and, with the aid of Archangel Michael, transform that which hinders to that which serves our own and humanity's highest good.
