The Del Mar Foundation, in partnership with the Friends of the Del Mar Library, welcomed Fancy Nancy illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser to the Del Mar Powerhouse for a splendiferous Fancy Nancy Adventure on April 28.

The event highlights were a special presentation by the illustrator, fun activities including a parade around Powerhouse Park, a tiara craft courtesy of the Del Mar Library and fancy hairdos donated by the stylists of Pigtails & Crewcuts, a children’s hair salon in Flower Hill Mall.

The participation in this event included over 300 children, parents and grandparents; many dressed in feathers and sequins to celebrate the visit of the creator of this beloved series of books.

The grand finale of the afternoon was a party on the terrace at the Del Mar Plaza where families were able to have their Fancy Nancy books autographed by Robin Preiss Glasser, enjoy ice cream, lemonade and cookies, and make bracelets for the group Beads of Courage, Inc. a nonprofit organization helping children during treatment for serious illnesses.

This event, organized by the Children’s Committee of the Del Mar Foundation, would not have been possible without the assistance of the volunteers from the San Dieguito Chapter of the National Charity League, a mother-daughter philanthropic organization, the staff of the City of Del Mar and the management of the Del Mar Plaza.
