Sharpsburg's Kennedy Park transforms into Hogwarts haven
Wizards and witches are invited to park their brooms at Kennedy Park on Saturday for a day of spellbinding community entertainment.
The field along North Canal Street will transform from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. into the magical village of Sharpsmeade, inspired by J.K. Rowling's “Harry Potter” series.
“Grab your cauldron and ready your best robes,” said Brittany Reno, councilwoman and executive director of Sharpsburg Neighborhood Association.
The group is hosting the fall festival that is expected to have activities for the whole family.
Founded in 2014, the neighborhood association hosts educational workshops and events that are aimed at improving the borough.
Sharpsmeade will feature live music, a petting zoo, horse-drawn carriage rides, food, crafts and a pumpkin patch. Mask-free costumes are encouraged.
A grant from the Fugh Foundation is helping to cover the costs, Reno said.
