Maxwell Jaynes who came for the first time this year says, “Being able to go and be a part of a community, talking and relating about costumes and stuff is really great!” The event first started in 2012 and has only grown since. There are so many aspects at this event anyone can enjoy.
It started out as a normal road trip. Quinn went with her best friend, Kara, and Kara’s family to California. They did this because Kara was moving and they had been best friends for a very long time and before Kara moved, the girls wanted to get in some quality time together. While driving through the desert, they come upon a Victorian Inn that housed unusual people. The hotel was called The Inn Between, meaning the inn on the border of two states, but that’s not all it means.
It was one of those summers where life could not have been better or more carefree. Days were filled with rain and sunshine and mud; we became children of the Earth, farmers of the Burren. From clucking chickens and freshly laid eggs to the distant baaing of sheep. For once there was complete silence or at least the silence of a farmyard. . . the mooing of cows, laughter of rain, and busy presence of honey and bumblebees.
As youth, we would suckle sweet nectar from the tree of life,
Fearless youth with relentless energy and powerful radiance, free of strife,
Free minds scribbling stories of far off places with mythical wildlife.
