The Children's Fairyland in Oakland is now 70-years-old, and the best birthday gift you can give is supporting their fundraiser during the pandemic.

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The Bay Area's beloved Children's Fairyland turned 70 Wednesday.

This Oakland treasure is closed because of the coronavirus pandemic and could use some birthday love.

"Children and families are eager to return to Fairyland," their website says. "With your help, we'll be ready!"

The park is holding a fundraiser, hoping they won't have to close permanently, so families can keep coming back to make memories for generations to come.
