The Resort at Glade Springs announces a weekend of spellbinding adventure this Labor Day weekend with its first-ever “Wizarding Weekend” attraction. This family event, scheduled for Friday, August 31 and Saturday, September 1, 2018 is dedicated to capturing the spirit of magic and enchantment. Guests will be organized into Orders of Enchantment on their arrival, and the weekend will be filled with activities such as Wand Crafting, Quidditch Practice, Scavenger Hunts, Trivia, specialty drinks at an Elixir Bar and more, topped by a magnificent Wizard’s Feast on Saturday evening, followed by a race for the Wizard’s Cup. "Wizarding events have been a hit all over the United States and around the world in recent years,” explains Ashley Long, Creative Director at the Resort. “This will be West Virginia’s first Wizarding festival, and we look forward to welcoming guests from not just our area but from all over the country to participate. We encourage everybody, young and old, to dress in their favorite wizarding costumes, as cosplay will be a big part of Wizarding Weekend, although it is not a requirement to join the fun. Being in costume will add to the atmosphere making mixing and socializing with other Wizards, Witches and magical creatures a lot more fun!”
