Nature is Magical!

Come Alive Outside and Partners for Prevention are celebrating the magical wellness benefits of nature with Harry Potter-themed activities and events at Rotary Park in Rutland on July 23. 

From 10am-1pm, wizards, witches and muggles of all ages can delight in free activities led by community organizations and businesses. Make your own wand, create a horcrux or even play a game of water-balloon quidditch. Would-be wizards can also walk the muggle mile and see how many items on the marauder’s map they can find. Costumes are encouraged for everyone, and the best costume will win a prize. There is no entry fee for participants.  

The muggle mile walk is at 10:30am. Costume judging takes place at noon. Come enjoy the magic of nature!
