Almost 37 years ago, a very special wizard was born. Or, at least that’s how the legend goes. July 31st, 1980 is the birth date for Harry Potter, namesake for the closely cherished and very popular book series. It’s time for all the wizards and witches of Fort Collins to celebrate everyone’s favorite magical hero!
Fort Collins Comic Con and Poudre River Public Library District are hosting two fun, family-friendly events to mark this special occasion. Be sure to come by one day (or all of them) to experience a bit of magic and meet like-minded Harry Potter Fans.
Escape to Hogwarts with activities like Wizard Duels, Potion Making, Wand Making, and a scavenger hunt. Adults and children are welcome to participate in these adventures, which will test their wizarding mastery and bring the books to life. Participants will take home a few keepsakes to celebrate their newly obtained skills. For more info, visit: http://bit.ly/2qd7r92

Does your furry (or scaly) friend have whimsical interests? Or perhaps you like dressing them in cute costumes? This is the event for you. Participants will depart from Library Park at 11:40am through Old Town to display their finest wizard robes (well, the light version, it is July) and celebrate the Harry Potter fandom. Different stations of the walk will be designed around the magical creatures of Hogwarts and the studies of esteemed Magizoologist Newt Scamander.
Volunteers will be posted at each station to direct traffic and ensure everyone’s safety. Participants are asked to please pick up after their pets. Pets of all shapes and species are welcome on this adventure, but they must be on a leash or some other restraint. To showcase the most creative costumes for the Pet Walk, participants may enter a costume contest at 11am and be awarded for categories like “Cutest” or “Most Fantastical Creature.” Afterward, participants can reconvene at the park to make blankets for local animal shelters.
