Sponsor: ALEP 2: There and Back Again

Another "Lord of the Rings" Themed Event is in the works! "ALEP 2: There and Back Again" 2011 returns courtesy of the same wonderful people who brought you "A Long Expected Party" held at Shaker Village in Harrodsburg, KY in September of 2008. This exciting event will feature storytelling, music, adventure, languages and lore all inspired by JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings novels. Come celebrate a reenactment of the great halls of Gondor, the beautiful forested Elven outpost of Rivendell, and the peaceful green hills of The Shire. Join us Sept 28 through October 2nd, 2011 for a weekend you will never forget. Find out more details at
