BOZEMAN — The Gallatin Valley Land Trust and a theater company called Random Acts of Silliness have partnered to bring a little magical experience to Bozeman.

The "Flutterby Thicket Fairy Village" is now on display along the Gallagator Trail.

“We helped bring this to the community just to bring some joy and magic into people’s lives. It’s amazing. You spend ten minutes down here and you can hear kids laughing and enjoying themselves and excitingly running around and pointing things out to their parents,” explained Danielle Thomsen, the founder of Random Acts of Silliness.

The village is a light-hearted way to spread joy in a community that’s faced a lot. “There’s been so many challenges for Americans, for Bozemanites in these last few months that giving people some joy, some magic, something to look forward to is extra important,” Thomsen said.

The exhibit’s only been up for a day but it’s already serving its purpose. "It was so fun installing yesterday and hearing all these kids in the woods going, 'Oh, aah! Mom look at this!'” Visscher exclaimed.

The village will be on display through October 5th. The exhibit is free and open to everyone. The only thing that they ask is that you respect the artwork and don’t touch, add, or take away any of the pieces. They hope that visitors will accept the challenge of building their own fairy house at home and share images on social media.
