Halloween is almost here, and there are many events happening around Cleveland Tuesday to celebrate the holiday. One of these events is "Hogwarts Halloween" at the Cleveland Bradley County Public Library.
The library will be hosting a family-friendly event inspired by the Harry Potter book series by J.K. Rowling. "Muggles" of all ages are invited to participate in the event, which takes place from 4 to 6 p.m.
Upon entering the library, guests will each be handed a "Marauders
Map" which will guide them through the event.
“We will have activities set up for all ages,” youth services librarian Nikki Snyder said. “We welcome everyone.”
These activities include a "Toddler Tri-Wizard Tournament," House sorting, a photo booth, a wand-making class and a potions class.
In the potions class, guests will perform an experiment creating "basilisk venom." They will also be given the recipe to perform the experiment at home.
There will also be a “Great Hall” set up and music playing, as well as opportunities to take photos at "Platform 9 3/4" and visit the shops of "Diagon Alley."
Snyder asked that anyone wearing a scary costume not view the "Toddler Tri-Wizard," as they don’t want to scare the children. She also asks that all attendees wear family-appropriate costumes to "Hogwarts Halloween."
The library's Teen Advisory Group helped to prepare for the event and acted as program advisors. Student volunteers will also be there to help set up for the event and run the activities.
There are over 890 people interested in attending the event, according to its Facebook event page. Snyder expects that at least half that number will attend, so “come prepared.”
