A summertime tradition for the Paseo Arts District, the annual Fairy Ball has been canceled in light of the coronavirus pandemic. 

As previously reported, the enchanting family-friendly event is organized by the nonprofit Theatre Upon a StarDanceSwan and takes place annually at the nearby historic Crown Jewel Amphitheater. 

The event features "Flower Magic," where children are invited to weave real flowers and fronds into crowds, garland, leafy wings and more, followed by a brief performance by Theatre Upon a StarDance Swan performers. Attendees are then encouraged to dance the evening away to live music by Steven McLinn’s Ojas Music.

Paseo Arts District Executive Director Amanda Bleakley said the Fairy Ball festivities might be combined this year with Theatre Upon a StarDanceSwan's annual Magic Lantern Celebration, which takes place in autumn around Halloween. 

As previously reported, the Paseo Arts District has postponed its long-running Paseo Arts Festival, a Memorial Day weekend tradition, to Labor Day weekend, which is Sept. 5-7, in response to the pandemic.
