Children young and old have been captivated by the magic going on at an enchanted garden in Whangārei.

Whangārei Quarry Gardens in collaboration with Northland Youth Theatre, Circus Kumarani and Sistema Whangārei, presented "The Enchanted Garden" at the quarry gardens yesterday.

Magical creatures descended on the gardens for one special day, with visitors dressed in theme for the day of school holiday fun. There were spot prizes for the best dressed children, pixies, fairies, pirates and giants.

Northern Advocate photographer Tania Whyte went along to capture the excitement.
