Fortunately, elves are not like witches and don't melt when you pour water on them -- which was a good thing for the Pasadena Waldorf School's annual Elves' Faire, held Saturday despite being bookended by rain showers. The booths, games, handcrafted items, music, and food went on for the appreciative crowds for the 27th year. Here, Waldorf dad Julian Koziak risks rust in his full suit of armor.
