The Marysville Opera House where the Princess and Pixie Dust is scheduled to take place on Sept. 24.

Princesses and pixies will come to the Marysville Opera House this September to meet with local girls on Sept. 24.

The City of Marysville's new "Princess and Pixie Dust" event will be held 2-3:30 p.m.

"This is the first year we're offering this event and we're excited to have it at the Opera House," said Andrea Kingsford, Marysville recreation coordinator.

Characters from an outside company are being brought in for the event, including two princesses and a pixie, she said.

Kingsford said that Disney characters like Beauty and Tinker Bell could be among those that come by the Opera House for the day.

"Kids can meet and greet the characters and ask them questions," said Kingsford. "I think the families will really like having an opportunity to meet these princesses."

Treats will be provided by Marysville frozen yogurt business The Creamery Co.

Arts and crafts activities related to the characters will also be provided by the city.

"It's really looking like a fun way to have a magical afternoon," said Kingsford.

Participating children and parents are also encouraged to come in their fanciest and most regal dress.

"A lot of girls love to dress up and this gives them an opportunity to put on a dress," said Kingsford.

The new event from the City of Marysville is an opportunity to have a princess-themed event in the city.

"We are always looking for new opportunities for families to recreate together and have fun," said Kingsford.

"We have in the past had families ask about any events with princesses, so we've been looking for a way to incorporate them into some type of event," she said.

The Princess and Pixie Dust event is a way to bring in some of those elements for some family fun, said Kingsford.

The event takes place at the downtown Marysville Opera House at 1225 Third Street, Marysville.

"We're excited to showcase the Opera House," said Kingsford.

"We are happy to have this in the Opera House which is just a beautiful location and gives a really regal feel to these princesses," she said.

The City of Marysville started a lease with the Opera House early last year and has provided many cultural and family events there since then.

"The events have been well received so far," said Kingsford.

"We've had such a variety of events and people really enjoy being in the building," she said.

Visitors should be aware that stairs are used to access the balcony and lower levels of the building.

"We look forward to offering this new event," said Kingsford.

She encourages people to pre-register for the event as she expects it to sell out. Tickets are $15 per person and an adult must register with a child.

Sponsors for this event include The Creamery Co., Spark Hot Yoga and Country Financial.
