MISSOULA — This week’s Arts and Education report features a non-profit group in town that’s bringing a fantastic event that you won’t want to miss.

For those who love art, magic and Halloween, the Enchanted Forest Fundraiser this Saturday is the event for you.

With live performances, interactive art and mystical characters it is fun for the entire family.

“We will have performers we will have aerialists and dancers and musicians. We will have local food, local wine and beer.

There will be characters which will be hosting different art stations where you can go and make a harvest crown or a magic wand,” Turning the Wheel Missoula Director Lulu Delphine said.

“You can enjoy storytelling, you can sit back in our chill space and enjoy a light show. There are many things going on and so many places for you to experience in the enchanted forest,” she added.

All of the money raised during this event is going to help Turning the Wheel Missoula.

“So, Turning the Wheel Missoula is a nonprofit arts organization that gives people, social, emotional and physical healing through the arts,” Delphine told MTN News.

Now you may have seen Lulu before, as she is an arts integration teacher with SPARK! Arts Missoula which is very similar to what Turning the Wheel Missoula offers the entire community.

“We work in the schools, we work with teachers, we work in the prisons, we work all over the place with different populations," Delphine said.

"So while arts integration sometimes teaches you science and math, we are teaching these life skills for success and leadership,” she added.

The Enchanted Forest Fundraiser will be taking place on Saturday from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at Free Cycles Missoula on First Street West.
