Slaying dragons: Larpers introduce live-action feats at Lowell Park fall festival

Coraline Jones, 9, and sister Zoey, 12, stand locked in an epic sword battle Saturday, Sept. 23, 2023 at Lowell Park. The two were sampling the weapons provided by the CER LARP group.

Dixon’s Lowell Park held its first fall festival Saturday at the Pinetum. The day featured vendors, crafts, snacks and a hayrack ride. Also on hand was a live action role-playing group, CER LARP, which introduced its weapons, gear and rules in its fantasy world to visitors to the fest. Artists and gardeners alike brought in the fruits of their trade for sale at the fest.
