Our next holiday celebration is Lughnasadh- Saturday, August 6th, 2016 @ 2:00 pm
This event will be a little different from our usual celebrations. We will gather at Grass Point State Park to honor Lugh and his foster mother Tailtiu with games, as is traditional at this time of year. There is a huge playground and beach for visitors to enjoy. We rented a pavilion for shade or shelter from the rain.
Around 3:00, we will open our ritual before beginning the games. The games will be our main offering to Lugh and Tailtiu. Guests are encouraged to join in our competition for protogrove warrior! You may participate in as many games as you like, and you’re certainly welcomed to watch if you prefer. Some of the games we will play include: yoga balancing, a short sprint, lawn darts, and a bardic competition. Prizes will be rewarded, and the protogrove warrior will receive a special crown.
A potluck dinner will follow our ritual and games.
