It was a great day at the Golden Museum as the Amuse Troupe held a Spirit Fair for families in Golden.

Amuse member Jared Kotyk said the troupe made the decision to have the fair so people in town could come together at a family friendly event.

“It started off two years ago…we wanted to do a Spirit Fair or May Day like they used to do in the past in Golden,” he said.

Last year the event could not be organized but the Amuse Troupe never gave up the idea of holding it again in 2013.

“We enjoyed it a lot two years ago. We believe it is a good event for the community,” Kotyk said.

When asked how the event went Kotyk said, “It was amazing…that is about the best word to describe it. There was a lot to do and it was packed with fun.”

Kotyk added there was lots of music, kids with balloons, face painting and magic wand making to keep people entertained.

“That is the only reason to do an event like this. We are here for families to have fun on the long weekend and give them something magical to do.”
