Harry Potter fans unite! Diagon Alley is coming to NJ for one day
For those of you (like me) who have been dying to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter but have yet to have the funds for it, I have the next best thing: Spring Street in Newton, NJ will turn into Diagon Alley on Nov. 25th!
According to onlyinyourstate.com, the street (and some of the businesses on it) will make its magical transformation following Newton's holiday parade.
For one glorious day, we can all pretend that we actually got our Hogwarts letter at age 11 (I'm still bitter that I didn't) by taking Quidditch lessons, learning potion making, and then kicking back with a nice butterbeer. Between the Bread on Spring Street will even take on the role of the Grand Hall, they're saying that you will be able to dine "beneath the floating candles."
Other local businesses will take part in the event by turning into Ollivander's Wand Shop, Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, and the Leaky Cauldron. The cherry on top? You can also be sorted into a Hogwarts house! I know we'd all like to think we're Gryffindors, but odds are some of you reading this are Hufflepuffs, sorry to be the one to tell you this.
So dust off your Hogwarts scarf, bust out those round glasses, and start practicing your spells. Say it with me: "it's levi-OH-sa, not levio-SAH."
