For some local families in Fenton, spring doesn't really begin until the annual May Day and Faerie Festival.
Heavenly Scent Herb Farm owners hosted the event Saturday and Sunday.
Owner Kathy Mathews has been offering this festival since 1989, only a year after they opened their doors.
Mathews, a former teacher, has always been hooked on faeries. One of the reasons she began this festival was because it "brings kids closer to nature."
