Wiccan/ Pagan Festivals:

I was curious about this idea all day. I don't think it would happen because of the lack of being in contact with the right people and such, and a possible lack of interest but I want to see what everyone else thinks out this. So, what if instead of hiding and gathering during a Pagan festival. The people who normally plan these things actually decided to do it in a really public place where it is normally a Christian area and instead of just inviting Pagans all religions were welcome? I think, with the right atmosphere some Christians might actually be able to develop some tolerance. I think it would be they held it in like a public park or something and people could actually see what Wiccans and Pagans are all about. All I'm saying is it might help the image of witches being said to be devil worshipers disappear for a while. I'm not saying to preach but if people started going in and having fun and some of the people on the outside saw everyone else was having fun wouldn't it make some people more likely to want to see what it was all about? I know there also could be consequences but if some people did this for a couple of years consecutively wouldn't it help a little bit? And maybe if people did gather regularly there to hold festivals on certain days it might become kind of a normal thing for Christians to see happening after a couple of years. What do you guys think?
