Fairy Queen at the Brisbane Ekka

Monday, August 20th, 2007

We had a fabulous time up in the Enchanted Forest at the Ekka this year. We played lots of games, ate lots of fairy floss, and met some wonderful people. Is your photo in our Ekka album? If you have a photo with the Fairies from Ekka this year that you would like to see here, please send an email to the Fairy Queen!

The wonderful Finn, who convinced his mum and dad to come back to the Enchanted Forest for a second day of playing with the Fairies. We welcome you to our flock Finn!

The beautiful Porscha, another little fairy who came back for a second day in the Enchanted Forest.

Check out this fabulous fairy hairstyle! Ekka style that is! This beautiful girl came and entertained us for a while – wait until you see her sister!!

Yes! This is her fabulous sister – what a great family!! Check out that wonderful Unicorn!

We loved this little girls’ doll. Fairy Princess Rainbow and Alan just had to get in on the photo!

This lovely young man came out from the CWA food place to have a photo with the Fairy Queen!

We had lots of photos taken with lots of wonderful people!

Ah! The Fairy Floss girls. This was one of my favourite stands. Everyone has to have fairy floss (and daggy dogs) when they come to the Ekka!

Everyone wanted to join in with the Caboolture Cobra Cheerleaders!

Fairies in the Enchanted Forest

Monday, August 20th, 2007

We’re having a blast in the Enchanted Forest at this year’s Ekka. There’s fairies running everywhere…playing ‘What’s the Time Fairy Queen’ and rocking out to the Fairy Pokey.

This is Fairy Princess Petal and I doing some funky Fairy dancing (hands in the air, feet going everywhere!)

Fairy Princess Snowflake in the middle of a very intense game of ‘What’s the Time Fairy Queen’.

This is Fairy Princess Sparkles when she was almost caught out at Fairy Bop.

Fairy Princess Mischief and I after another great day at the Ekka!

This is us just strolling around, enjoying all the wonderful things the Ekka has to offer.

The Best MC at the Ekka

Monday, August 20th, 2007

We love Karen Hamilton
The Best MC at the Ekka, well, in the world really!

Karen was our MC up in the Enchanted Forest and we love her no end! We even crowned her a Fairy Princess on the last day. Karen has done an amazing job as host of the Forest for the past 7 years and we look forward to catching up with her again soon. (Sometimes, Karen was even crazier than what we were! She does a mean macarena!)

Caboolture Cobra Cheerleaders & The Last Day of Ekka

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

Well, last day of the Ekka! What an amazing ten days it’s been! We have met some absolutely wonderful people and had SO much fun. Can’t wait to do it all over again next year!

On our last day, we got a little more complex with the Caboolture Cobra Cheerleaders. We had watched these young ladies perform daily, up to three times a day – gee, do they have some energy! What a great way to build fitness and confidence in young girls. Anyway, Miss Julie added a shimmy to the routine, Karen came out to join us, as did Travis from the Bilbies… well, it’s better to just watch the video…(coming soon – watch this space!)

We finished off our days in the Enchanted Forest with another round of Funky Fairy Dancing, an uncoordinated Macarena, and a huge Fairy basketful of great memories and fabulous friendships!

Super Shirl the Dancing Girl from Fitness and Dance

Saturday, August 18th, 2007

Yay for Super Shirl!

We got to dance and jump around with Super Shirl the Dancing Girl from Fitness and Dance everyday in the Enchanted Forest! Supershirl has a high energy interactive show where she shows everyone that they all have a little superhero inside themselves! (I learnt that I was a Superhero at Wand Waving!).

Here’s Stardust doing ‘rolly pollys’ along with the kids during Super Shirl’s show.

Fire Fighters, Calendars & The Most Important Doorman

Friday, August 17th, 2007

This is the Most Important Doorman at the Ekka. He has a Most Important job. This is in front of the Most Important Door at the RNA showgrounds.

And we met lots of fire fighters! These guys volunteer every year at Ekka to sell their calendars to raise money for the Burns Unit at the Children’s Hospital. You can support them and buy one of their calendars here.

Yes! Lots of Firemen!

Barnyard Babies Nursery and Bubble Boy

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

I went down to visit the Barnyard Babies Nursery today and this calf decided to play peek-a-boo with my skirt. He came up and nudged my leg, and then just stayed there! I got my skirt and flicked it over his head and said “peek-a-boo” and he seemed to like it. So we played for a while. Then he saw someone with a bucket of food and he took off.

Let me introduce you to “Bubble Boy”. We say hello to him everyday, he always has a smile and a heap of bubbles for the Fairies! (Yes, he sells bubble machines).

Go for 2 & 5, Fairy Floss, and 22 flavours of Licorice!

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

Dagwood Dogs, Fairy Floss, Strawberry Icecreams, it’s all happening at the Ekka!

More than Daggy Dogs for brekkie, we love the Fairy Floss. Did you know that this one comes in three flavours??

This is the amazing Licorice man. He has, not 10 flavours, not 20 flavours, but 22 different flavours of licorice! (We recommend the Gooseberry!)

And look who I ran into!! This is the ‘Go For 2 & 5’ person! I was very excited to meet him, and he gave me a lovely crunchy cool apple to eat for my fairy lunch! 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of veges every day – YUMMY!

Rockin’ Fairies on the Radio at 96.5FM

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

The Enchanted Forest also hosts Family 96.5FM radio, broadcasting live daily during the Ekka.

They talked live on air to the Fairies a few times, and we even sung the Fairy Pokey! I interviewed Tanya Gordon for a job position as a Fairy, and she scored pretty highly. Do you think she’d make a good Fairy Princess? The photo above is of Fairy Princess Stardust’s moment of fame!

Stardust also rocked out with her electric guitar in the Enchanted Forest. Once she saw Rockin’ Ranger Matt go off, she decided to show everyone what a jazz Fairy has going on. She sang her way through the Fairy Pokey and we had a great time being so loud that all the cows up the back started to moo along with us!
