Geek Out During “Middle Earth Day” at Higgins Armory

Saturday, September 29, 2012

 

Grab your Hobbit costumes and head to Higgins for some LOTR themed fun.

If you feel like getting your geek on today, head to Higgins Armory for "Middle Earth Day."

In case you were curious, this is nothing like Arbor Day, but rather a celebration of the mythical world from J.R.R. Tolkien's classic "Lord of the Rings" book series. Middle Earth is a realm inhabited by Hobbits, Elves, Wizards and other magical creatures, so grab a costume and head over for a day of fun.

The Armory will feature its own Bilbo Baggins, the lead character from Tolkien's "The Hobbit," to tell stories to those in attendance. You can also design your own Gandorian shield and learn how to slay an evil orc.

There will also be games, where kids can play in the Shire, see if they can outgrin a dwarf, and attempt to name the 13 Dwarves from the Hobbit. Quick, Google it now!

The program will feature several different segment dedicated to specific games and trivia contests. The prize for winning these battles of skill and wit is precious Higgins gold, so you best be on top of your game.

Festivities begin at 10 am and run through 4 pm.  Most of the activities are free with admission to the museum. Visit the Armory's website here for more details.
