Time:9:30 am – 3 pm
Price:$10 Donation per Scavenger Hunt Card ** admission not included
Story Land and One Mission are partnering to create a fairytale weekend for kids fighting cancer and their families and we need your help!
On Saturday, September 23rd, Story Land and One Mission will be hosting: A Scavenger Hunt to Grant A Fairytale
This event is open to everyone! Once you enter the park head on over to the One Mission: The Scavenger Hunt to Grant A Fairytale table, for a $10 donation you will receive a scavenger hunt card. This card will be filled with fun activities, everything from taking a selfie with Tinkerbell to uncovering a fossil at Dig-M Deeper Play Area. Once you've completed The Scavenger Hunt, turn your card into the closest One Mission table for a chance to win awesome prizes!
Money raised at The Scavenger Hunt to Grant a Fairytale will provide a weekend getaway to the Mount Washington Valley for up to ten families currently fighting pediatric cancer. Many families know how great it is to spend a day with one another at the Park, now you have the chance to provide that same opportunity to a family who otherwise would not be able to!
The Inspiration Behind the Scavenger Hunt to Grant a Fairytale:
In the summer of 2015, a chance encounter changed the lives of then 4-year-old Belle Swersey and her family. Through a series of unlikely events, they had an experience at Story Land and in the Mount Washington Valley that changed their family forever – that helped them get through Belle’s pediatric cancer treatment in a way nothing else could. For a brief window of time, they got to live in a magic world of princesses and storybook characters, escape into nature, and forget about treatment and cancer. Belle was simply a little girl; her sister Sadie was her loving sidekick.. It was a weekend Belle and her family will never forget.
About One Mission:
One Mission is a pediatric cancer charity that does whatever it takes to get kids through cancer treatment. One Mission programs make living in the hospital less lonely and stressful, bring back joy in a time of fear and uncertainty, and give kids and their loved ones the support they need to get through the emotional and financial challenges of treatment.
Looking to donate towards this great cause? Your donation will go directly towards Grant A Fairytale!

Pumpkin Carving Demonstration
Date: October 7th, 2017
Location: Believe in Books Theater
Time: 10 am – 1 pm
Join us while we watch William bring pumpkins to life! He will be carving at the front of the park under the Believe in Books Theatre from 10 am – 1 pm on Saturday, October 7th.
William is a self-taught subtractive sculptor who works primarily in wood and has been carving for more than thirty-seven years. But, during September and October his tools delve into a fun, though temporary medium…..PUMPKINS! The goal of each sculpted pumpkin is to show unique expression. It be a comical – scary character or someone perhaps, recognizable. “The joy in carving pumpkins is that I can finish a piece in a shorter amount of time” says William. This allows the viewer to see the techniques used in subtractive sculpture. Also, this can be a bit of performance art with interaction with an audience that other forms of sculpture cannot give. Winning more than a hundred ribbons, awards, and prize money, his wood and stone sculptures are collected worldwide. William has been featured on television- Doug Rafferty's "Doug's Discoveries", Lake Living Magazine, newspaper features and Steve Minich, WMTW – Made in Maine.
