The "Wheel of the Year Altar Display"

One of the main educational areas of our festival was the
"Wheel of the Year Altar Display" including Rites of Passage altars and many others.
Each altar that was set up in the display was done by a volunteer who decides which type of altar they wanted to do, or the coordinator for the altar area, give some suggestions.

Each altar is individual. A small sign was posted to state what type of altar it was and most altars had either information posted or handouts explaining the altar and the items upon it, etc.
