Larping at Glen Park

Every Saturday this summer, join in some sword tag fun, also known as larping. Head over to Glen Park on the northwest corner near the Swing Bridge at 1 p.m. “The game begins when two teams converge on the ‘battlefield,’” said Ben Toppel in an email to the River Fall Journal. “Once a player is touched with a foam weapon they must not use that limb.”
