Leprechaun hunt, egg decorating highlight crafts fair

By From page A4 | March 06, 2013

The Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair is coming to Central Park from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday with more than 40 food and craft vendors, live music and March festivities including dyeing Easter eggs and a leprechaun hunt. The park is at Fourth and C streets in downtown Davis.

Visitors who join the hunt search the booths where a written joke, a leprechaun or a spirit creature is hidden. Organizers have collected 12 creatures from traditional folklore, anime, Native American legends and Silicon Valley nightmares. Anyone who finds all 12 is rewarded with an ethnographic creature bio and a coloring sheet. Booths that don’t have creatures will have printed jokes.

Fair visitors also can dye eggs at a craft table. Monica Riche and first-time guest Dan Szumski will teach visitors how to apply wax patterns to eggs. Szumski decorates eggs with Polish style wax resist swirls, dot patterns and starbursts.

Craft vendors will feature ceramics, jewelry, quilts, fiber art and wood working. See photos at www.SquareTomatoesCrafts.com or on Facebook.
