___________________________________________________________

Due to impacts from Hurricane Irma there will not be any pony or unicorn rides this year. All ponies and unicorns are safe but are unable to make the journey to Fort Bragg at this time. All other performances and groups, to include the new Horseback Archery Show, Flying Hooves, are set to attend as previously scheduled. Hope to see you at the Faire this weekend!
