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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
