Oakland’s Fairyland Posted on August 16, 2014 Once a year, Oakland’ Fairyland on Lake Merritt opens its doors for adults. I was lucky enough to be in attendance this year. It is a really amazing place to explore, there is a lot to see. The Mad hatter can be seen in the background. Am I in the cage or is he? A stylish pony pose. Not today A crooked house – Enron must have felt like this. Get me out!
