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!
