Potter fans will be thrilled to hear that there is now a way to celebrate the holiday season Hogwarts style. A Harry Potter Magical Holiday Ball will be hosted at select Barnes & Noble locations on December 9. The exciting event is also open to the public and FREE!
The affair was recently announced on the Barnes & Noble website, and many of their locations are participating. This special occasion aims to be reminiscent of the Yule Ball, a formal dance that fascinated fans of the Harry Potter book and movie series.
In the chronicles, the Yule Ball is held on Christmas night during the Triwizard Tournament and is only open to students at the fourth year level or higher. While forsaking the cannon of a Christmas night event and the exclusive invitation list, Barnes & Noble is still hoping to transport attendees to a magical place that allows them to celebrate their love for the lore that J.K. Rowling created. All ages are invited to come, and guests are encouraged to dress up in their “holiday best” or as their favorite Harry Potter personality. There will be music, dancing, activities and giveaways for those that attend.
The Holiday Balls will be held this Friday, December 9 at 7pm in a number of their stores. Click here to see if a participating store is near you. Already the chain is reporting that there is a very high demand to attend, and it is recommended that Hogwarts hopefuls call their location in advance for any recommendations or special instructions.
