In celebration of the release of the movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” the Manchester Public Library held a Harry Potter Party on July 9, complete with a game of Quidditch.
The event drew young children and teens alike, showing the popularity of the Harry Potter across a range of ages. Cathy Salamation brought her children, noting that her 5-year-old son James is “just learning about Harry Potter from the older children.”
Although 10-year-old Jake came dressed in Ravenclaw house colors, he was “totally psyched” when he drew the Gryffindor house for the day’s events. His wand was safely by his side in a hand-made carrying bag.
Siblings Chase and Charm came in costume for the event. Charm, 9, said, “I’m glad to be Slytherin, because I get to be one of the bad guys.”
