LARP for Geek Younglings

live action role playing for kids

LARP for kids

The Walker Art Center, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is hosting some great creative activities for kids this summer. If you’re lucky enough to live in the area, check this out with your young geeks! It’s LARP for kids!

Event: August Free First Saturday: Garden Quest
When: Saturday, August 4, 10 am–3 pm
Where: Open Field/Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, Free

This August, live action role-playing (LARP) transforms the Garden into a land of mythical heroes and foes. Join a group of local artists on a special Lunalux–designed map guiding you on your LARPing adventure.

Expect a special battle school, a rather sinister ferryman, a siren who will try to lure you into your doom, a bridge that may or may not have a troll sleeping under it, a belligerent pixie and a disgruntled gnome lurking among the trees, a fortune teller, a witch, a space for rebirth and rejuvenation should you die, a mad drag queen, a shop keeper you may or may not want to trust, a hermit, an evil lord and other surprises. Join at your own risk!
