Wizards, wands and spells transform Sharpsburg's Kennedy Park on Saturday
Sharpsburg’s Kennedy Park will transform into a magical village Saturday for the 2018 Sharpsmeade Festival.
Wizard-wannabes, elves and fairies are invited from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a meet and greet with and owl from the Humane Animal Rescue, a pumpkin patch and live music provided by Wild Bill Cox (Eshkalar the Wizard), Colonel Eagleburger’s Highstepping Goodtime Band and Luna & the Thestrals.
There will also be bouncy castle, food trucks, free crafts and other activities throughout the park.
Visitors are encouraged to wear their best dress robes or other magical outfits, and join the costume contest sponsored by the Sharpsburg Neighborhood Organization.
Winners will be chosen through a Facebook vote following the event, with the top three vote-getters receiving gift cards.
Last year’s event surpassed organizers’ expectations when more than 2,500 people attended the fall-themed celebration.
