Since Harry Potter is turning 20 this year, one super fan decided to throw it - and herself - a very Harry birthday party with cocktails, costumes and decor all inspired by the incredible wizarding world. 

This very, Harry party is happening at Arts & Letters Club on August 4th. Torontonian Tess Barao is throwing the bash as a present to herself followed by a huge drop-in Quidditch match the following day, courtesy of Valhalla Quidditch

At the birthday bash of the wizarding-world-millenium, you can expect dancing and a live concert version of A Very Potter Musical. Although tickets for now are sold out, one can hopefully look forward to many a fantastical event by Second Star in the future. And of course, you can visit the Quidditch pitch the following day to get those HP-FOMO blues out.
