I can't wait for the Hogwarts Theme Park to open - sometime next year, I hope - SO, Hogwarts is coming to the Parkland Community Library this Saturday, October 17th, from 2 to 4 pm.
Here is a preview of what will happen.
Quidditch!! Well, Quidditch for Muggles. One or two 15 minute demo games will take place with players, ages 8 and up. Each player.e will get a broom and a House Badge (see Sorting below). The Quaffle and Bludgers will be balloons. The rules are simple. The Chasers will try to get the Quaffles through the goals. The Beaters will protect their teammates from the Bludgers and the Seekers will run after the Golden Snitch. We WILL have a Golden Snitch. Come see how THAT works out!
Sorting! Our Sorting hat is a bit different but it works quite well to separate the Slytherins from the Hufflepuff. Find out which House you belong in - just for the afternoon.
Crafts! Make a Divination Paperholder from glass gems and clay.
Costumes! Come in Costume, if you dare. Costume fixings of some sort or another will be available on Saturday.
Stories! Help the Teen Tellers create a new Hogwarts story starring your favorite Hogwarts characters (Luna? Neville? Ron? George? Cho?). YOU get to decide and might even get to star.
Hogwarts Castle! Or a facsimile thereof. Just for fun and climbing through.
I hope to see you ALL at Hogwarts at the Parkland Community Library, Saturday, Oct. 17th from 2 to 4 pm
