Harry Potter Party
Halloween 2000

Welcome to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, entered via the portkey at our front door. This is Harry Potter himself in the Great Hall.

Ron Weasley visiting with fellow students from Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.

Our Hogsmeade village featured the Three Broomsticks and Madam Rosmerta's butterbeer, Honeydukes, replete with Every Flavor Beans and many other wizard favorites. Our Diagon Alley featured Gringott's (where money was dispersed to all party goers, prior to their trip to Honeydukes), and Ollivander's Wand Shop.

Ron Weasley ponders his next purchase in Hogsmeade.

Here's that Potter kid again. Nice socks, Potter, but your friend looks like he's had some Ton-Tongue Toffee.

My evening was compromised by an unfortunate Moldy Lint Bean. Others were more fortunate, experiencing Mint Strawberry, Watermelon Delight, and Pumpkin Creme.

Professor Gilderoy Lockhart impressed all with many recollections of his endeavors in The Magical Me.

"Mad-Eye" Moody, fourth Professor of the Dark Arts, maintained constant vigilance throughout the gala, ensuring safety for all. Constant vigilance!

Perhaps the star attraction was high in the North Tower, if you could handle the heavy incense, where Professor Trelawney was holding court.

Rita Skeeter (with her Quick-Quill) tries to get the inside scoop on Harry's love life from Molly Weasley, here in the Three Broomsticks (two of which are visible above them).

Let's see, that'd be Rita Skeeter, Professor McGonagall, Molly Weasley, and Mad-Eye Moody, discussing the news revealed in our Potter Clue game: that Cornelius Fudge released the Death Eaters held in Azkaban while simultaneously trying Harry Potter for murder.

Sybll Trelawney in action, no doubt foretelling fame and romance for Hermione while saving her doom and gloom prophecies for Harry.
