What is Unicorn World, and how did a seven-year-old Mainer run it for a day?

Unicorn World is an immersive, interactive, and themed event with a magical forest and life-sized unicorns. It was the brainchild of husband and wife duo Lauren and Patrick Mines. Here's where Catherin Higgins comes in. Catherine entered a local business plan contest with the idea of a unicorn world where families make special memories together. She did not win. But when Lauren and Patrick heard of Catherine's story, they decided to let her put her business plan to work, and made her CEO for a day. She welcomed families to a unicorn utopia during the Atlanta event on April 20-21.

It was a day of CEO duties for Catherine. She had to lead a team meeting before the doors opened, check in with key employees, conduct media interviews, and interview guests during the event. Lauren said in a press release,

When we heard Catherine’s story, we knew we had to fly her family to our Atlanta show, show her a sneak peak of how the magic of Unicorn World is made and give her the most wonderous job ever, being CEO for a day.


Unicorn World will be in Hartford, Connecticut, on June 15 & 16
