Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey will be transformed into Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley on November 25th. The event is free for all ages.
The street will be transformed following the holiday parade on Saturday. There will be quiddich lessons, a cosplay contest, horcrux hunt, potion making, and more! Wizard-lovers will even have a chance to wear the sorting hat to be placed into a Hogwart’s house.
Diagon Alley is a wizard marketplace in the Harry Potter series. The fictional street is completely hidden from the muggle world and is where young Harry Potter goes to shop for his Hogwarts supplies in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Local businesses are getting involved and transforming their stores into the famous shops of Diagon Alley such as Ollivander’s Wand Shop and Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. The Leaky Cauldron, which is the London pub that holds the secret entrance to the wizarding alley, will be taken on by The Barrel House.
Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime wizard wonderland!
