Spellbinding Street Festival

Solve puzzles, learn spells, capture magical creatures, & duel your friends!

What is the Spellbinding Street Festival?

An assortment of characters you'll find on your adventure - fairies, pixies, dragons, winged horses, traveling cats, and wizards.

Join us in Lehighton, PA on Saturday, September 16th from 11AM – 5PM for a magical adventure where your phone is as good as a wand. Take a potions class, join Dueling Club, hunt for magical creatures, and learn spells to earn house points. We will announce the winners of the House Cup at day’s end, with special prizes for the witch or wizard who earns the most house points and for our dueling champions.

When you sign up for our site you will be able to use your phone to earn and keep track of your house points, extra spells, and more. Visit the Registration Information Booth in the Downtown Lehighton Park for more info.
