"What, Ridden on a horse!? You've got two empty halves of coconuts and you're bangin' 'em together!" - 1st Soldier with a Keen Interest in Birds, Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Calling all cosplayers, medieval knights, wizards, ogres, giants, goblins, and other fantasy creatures - the New Albany Parks Department is hosting its second LARP Battle & Bonfire! LARP, or live-action role playing, is a type of game where participants physically portray their characters, playing in a fictional setting while interacting with others participating "in character." Think Lord of the Rings, except instead of watching the movie, you can become Gandalf. After the LARP battle, participants can relax by the bonfire and share tales of glory (while making delicious s'mores).
