Sparta’s Potter in the Park

On June 26th, 1997, we learned of “The Boy Who Lived”. Join us at Rogers Park in Sparta, MI where we will be celebrating all things Harry Potter with this year’s “Tri Wizard” theme. The magic will begin at 3:00 PM. Your ticket includes entry into the park where you will be given the wizarding experience of the summer. This ticket includes all onstage events, snakes and owls, arts and crafts, demonstrations, house points competition, strolling through the Wizards and Wands Emporium, Horcrux Hunt, Gnome Tossing, and much more. Please note that a seperate ticket will be needed for the following events: Quidditch Training w/ the GVSU Grindylows, Swish and Flick Painting, and Herbology*. Children 5 and under will have free park entry with seperate tickets required for above noted sections. Once again we will be offering you an opportunity to race in the Arthur Weasley Duck Race. Portions of the proceeds will be donated towards Now Playing 4 Kids, a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to provide at-risk children the opportunity to dream, imagine, create, and explore by giving them the chance to experience the arts. Each duck raced will help pay for one foster child or at risk child attend a movie, festival, fair, or other entertainment opportunity. We are thrilled to let Harry Potter, a horribly abused orphan, help underprivleged and at risk kids find magic in the muggle world. The winning duck will recieve house points and $250.00.

Although the park event begins at 3:00 PM, the Tri Wizard Food Truck Rally begins at 11:00 AM with an opportunity to vote for your favorite. Votes will count towards House Points.
