WHAT: Middle Kingdom's Annual Twelfth Night Celebration -- This year's theme is "Period Gaming." People of all ages can get behind the joy of gaming. We'll have different games available for use from "Nine Man's Morris" to "Tafl." Whether you play for friendly company or the competitive joy of a bet, you'll find that it certainly plays into the spirit of joy this 12th Night. Attendees are encouraged to also bring their own games and teach others! The feast will be a German Banquet. The day will also hold a grand arts and science competition as well as many other wonderful opportunities. In the spirit of winter, it is encouraged that you bring warmer garb as there are also bound to be some great fun outside (if there is snow!).
WHEN: Saturday, January 7, 2017 from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm
WHERE: Hidden Springs Church, 5860 North Latson Rd., Howell, MI 48855 (click for driving directions).
