Local Harry Potter Fans: Silver Spring becomes Diagon Alley
Friday, July 20: Ellsworth Avenue in downtown Silver Spring is transformed into Diagon Alley! Stock up on all your wizarding needs with Harry Potter specials at shops such as Flourish and Blotts (Borders Books and Music), Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlor (Ben & Jerry's), The Leaky Cauldron (McGinty's Public House), and more! Activities include Harry Potter trivia contests, games, face painting, live music, and even a chance to make your own wand.
Come spend the day exploring Diagon Alley and visit AFI Silver Theatre for a Harry Potter movie marathon! Then at midnight, buy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Border's Books and Music. (Available at 12:01a.m.)
... cause, this seems like it's right up your alley. Haw haw.
