Harry Potter Weekend is Finally Here!

Harry Potter Weekend is Finally Here!

The Hogwarts transformation is complete!

Bringing out muggles and wizards alike, the annual Harry Potter weekend activities are in full swing. Thursday night kicked off the festivities with the annual Harry Potter Academic Conference high school section, welcoming young scholars to share well-crafted and insightful essays on the Harry Potter series. Friday, the College welcomed hundreds of visitors and speakers from all across the world to present as part of day two of the conference. Rooms were packed and discussion was fervent and everyone took something meaningful away from the day's events. As the conference wraps up, we head into Saturday, when the College and town of Chestnut Hill team up to host one of the largest Harry Potter-themed events in the world.

Check out this video by MyPHL 17 to learn more about what to expect for Saturday's event.

Fox 29 also stopped by during the conference to record some of the choral presentation. Be on the lookout for that to air sometime this afternoon between 4-6 p.m.

Chestnut Hill College's Potter-mania is at an all-time high and if you are an enthusiast of the books, ever wondered how muggle quidditch would be played, or just looking for a great fall festival to engage your inner wizard or witch, you won't want to miss the Harry Potter Festival all day Saturday.
