BookPeople’s famous midnight parking lot parties of yore are back for the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! On Saturday, July 30 the kids will, no doubt, want to stay up way past bed time to head over to BookPeople from 10 p.m. – 12 a.m. where a Diagon Alley atmosphere will be set up as well as all kinds of Harry Potter festivities. 

13654267_10154266865821698_4696918396615966745_nKids can participate in a costume contest, a House Cup Tournament (including a Quidditch challenge), trivia, and meet a whole cast of characters (some ghostly) to wander the party and interact with guests. They will also have local food vendors and a group called The Typewriter Rodeo onsite to type up poems (on appropriately old-fashioned apparatus) in the style of each of the houses.

This is a free event. You can secure your copy of the book by by purchasing a voucher, which you can redeem for a copy of the book on or after July 31. Click here to purchase Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II from BookPeople for $29.99.
