Incredible auction and raffle items will be available next weekend when the James Blackstone Memorial Library transforms into the magical world of Harry Potter for a wickedly fun Hogwarts Halloween weekend that will delight witches and wizards of all ages!
Weekend activities will include A Hogwarts Halloween for Kids on Saturday, October 20 at 10:00 a.m., and Sunday, October 21 at 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., where Hogwarts students ages 6 and up can visit Ollivander’s Wand Shop, attend a class with their favorite Hogwarts professor, and do some hands on care of magical creatures. Adult witches and wizards can enjoy a night of wizardly potions, sumptuous provisions and magical surprises at the A Hint of Hogwarts for Adults on Saturday, October 20, at 7:00 p.m., featuring a wandering feast, sinful spells, and deadly company.
The Hogwarts Faculty (library volunteers) have gathered everything from 8-hours of handyman work to gift certificates to your favorite local restaurants for the adult silent auction. But some of the most unique items that will be available in the auction and the kids’ cauldron raffle are two stunning hand-knit Weasley sweaters. Not a big Harry Potter fan? Perhaps a cocktail party hosted by the Hogwarts Faculty at a fabulous seaside property in Branford is more to your taste – you would win that too! For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit the website www.blackstonehalloween.org. All proceeds will benefit the children’s programs of the James Blackstone Memorial Library.
Hogwarts is part of the Harry Potter universe created by J.K. Rowling.
