Harry Potter Festival

Muggles, Squibs, Witches and Wizards of the world unite for there is an ACTUAL Harry Potter festival happening in Philadelphia this month and we're seconds away from booking a week off work and buying a plane ticket to actually go. 

The Harry Potter and Quidditch Tournament will kick off on October 21 at Chestnut Hill College and will be jam packed full of wizarding activities from sipping on the butterbeer to yeah, you guessed it, watching a full on Quidditch tournament!

Think of it as Glastonbury for Wizards, except with less mud and more fun.

Obviously, as it goes with any Harry Potter related event, fancy dress is encouraged. Attendees board the "Hogwarts Express" to the festival, get sorted into houses by a guy dressed as Dumbledore with a totally fake ass Sorting Hat.

You can take a trip to Hogsmeade and pop into Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, stroll through the Tri-Wizard Tournament maze, take a ride on a Thestral, visit an art gallery, hone your duelling skills at Defence Against The Dark Arts classes, visit Number 4 Privet Drive, hunt for Horcruxes, hop aboard the Knight bus and even stop by Hogwarts for a quick Charms lesson.

Right then, if we buy the plane tickets and you lot sort out the "Weird Sisters" tribute band, we can turn this festival into the greatest thing since Glasto. You in?
