Eragon Costume Contest, Games Will Be At Library


Adventurers from the mountain range known as The Spine, to the Farthen Dur in the magical land of Alagaesia are invited to become dragon riders at the Payson Library.

"Eragon," first book in the Inheritance Trilogy by Christopher Paolini, garnered increasing praise from its 2003 publication through the theatrical release in 2006.

The library hosted adventure includes a costume contest, games, refreshments and a writing and drawing contests. It begins at 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 25.

"We'll have the Eragon PS2 game on the projected on the big screen and the high scorer will wind a prize," children's event coordinator Harryette Stanley said.

Dragon riders ages 10 -- 18 can try their hand at the marshmallow catapult, mini-scavenger hunt and dragon craft.

The deadline for submissions in the character drawing and Inheritance Trilogy, and an epilogue summarizing how the third book will end have already passed.

There is still time to enter the costume contest as your favorite Eragon character, Stanley said.

Costumes may be handmade or purchased.

A $50 first prize will be awarded to the best costume, essay and drawing.

Winners will be announced during the event.
