To the delight of muggles wannabes everywhere, Chestnut Hill transforms into a mini -Hogsmeade for this annual block party that hat-tips J.K. Rowling’s mega--popular book series. The daylong festival brings out fans of all ages dressed in Harry Potter gear to take part in a host of activities, such as Dumbledore’s Powers Maze, Horcrux stations and even a Quidditch match at nearby Chestnut Hill College. Restaurants and stores all over the neighborhood also participate, transforming into wizardly versions of their everyday incarnations.
