Slithy Toves may gyre and gimble and Borogoves may be mimsy.
Whiffling through the tulgey wood makes one beamish and full of WHIMSY!
Get ready for one “wild tea party” when the Fair will fuse the magic of Lewis Carroll’s, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” with the artistic movement known as Steampunk.
Outlandish landscapes, crazy rides, unique foods, festivals, entertainment and magical manifestations by your favorite Wonderland characters will highlight every day of the Fair. The Jabberwock, Jubjub Bird and Frumious Bandersnatch may drive you, mad as a Hatter and “completely bonkers!” Then again, “All the Best People Are!” – Lewis Carroll
