Alabama ONE will host its first Fairytale Friends Breakfast with the Berenstain Bears on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Cypress Inn Pavilion (501 Rice Mine Rd N, Tuscaloosa, AL 35406).

We encourage children to wear their favorite Disney princess or Marvel character costumes.

A balloon twister dressed as Jedi and Glitter Tattoo Fairy will create balloon characters from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. CT. Children will also receive a professional photo, autographs from all the characters in their own autograph books and “swag” bags. The event will include special appearances from Cinderella, Prince Charming, Tiana, Snow White, the Beast and Brother and Sister (Berenstain) Bear.
A silent auction will also be held during the event to benefit Operation Credit Union Christmas. Tickets are $30 each for adults and children over 1 year old. Children under 1 year old receive free admission. Seating is limited and tickets are available on Eventbrite.
