Wizarding Weekend on Magical Main

The fourth annual Wizarding Weekend in Old Ellicott City, Maryland, is being held on October 1 and 2.

The event includes a scavenger hunt, a costume contest, live music, and Potter-inspired mischief and treats. In the scavenger hunt, you can answer Harry Potter trivia or locate an enchanted item, with the winner receiving a basket full of Harry Potter and Old Ellicott City treasures. It costs $5 to take part in the hunt, and all these fees will be donated to the National Federation for the Blind.
