Harry Potter represents more than just a series of books and movies—it’s a part of world culture that will be with us for a long time to come.
That’s why the Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, is gearing up for a Harry Potter All Hallow’s Eve Party on Tuesday, October 16 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. To make the event even more wizardy, the library is also presenting a Wizard Rock Concert featuring some of the most popular “wrock” performers, Whomping Willows and Lauren Fairweather. Want more? Have some fun with Juggle Whatever. There will also be games, snacks, prizes and a costume contest. The concert starts at 6:00 p.m. and the Costume Contest is at 6:30 p.m.
“This is our second year for throwing a Harry Potter-themed party close to Halloween,” said Belle Isle librarian Anna Todd. “Not only did the kids and teens have a lot of fun last year, but so did the library staff. I love the costumes so I guess I’m still kind of a kid myself. Everyone’s invited. It’s all free. If anyone has any questions they can call Belle Isle Library at 843-9601.”
You don’t need a magic spell for All Hallow’s Eve fun—just a ride to the library.
