Harry Potter fans young and old came out to celebrate the fictional character’s birthday during the Potter in the Park – Harry Potter’s birthday celebration held at Covered Bridge Park.
The event was sponsored by the Elizabethton / Carter County Public Library and Carter County Drug Prevention Coalition and featured a scavenger hunt, costume contest, and a trivia game followed by a showing of a Harry Potter movie.
A celebration of Potter is usually celebrated on July 31, otherwise known as Harry Potter’s Birthday. This day has been celebrated since 2001 when the first book in the series was released, and it is a special day for fans around the world.
This year, the celebration took place a little earlier but was a big hit with local Harry Potter fans both young and old.
