Waterbury Harry Potter Day brings Magic Back Downtown for it's Third Year on Friday July 30th
By: Cyril “CJ” May
Start your magical journey by picking up your "Magic Map" at Minuteman Press, 170 Grand Street. The Map provides a listing of all venues and their offerings such as food, drink and shows. The Silas Bronson Library's front lawn will feature activities including fire-breathing magic shows by Waterbury native Celtic Magician Daniel Greenwolf. Daniel's shows will be at 12 and 3, but vendors of wands, treats and other items will be on the lawn 11-4.
Host of Waterbury Harry Potter Day, Cyril the Sorcerer, will officiate the Tri-Wizard Challenge, singing of the "Waterbury Harry Potter Day Song", and offer a few magics at 2:30 pm, prior to Daniel's final show.
Adults interested in an evening event can purchase tickets for "Witchcraft and the Birth of Modern Magick" at The Mattatuck Museum. The event includes a sinister "potions and concoctions"
Waterbury Harry Potter Day wishes to acknowledge the tremendous support from local institutions and businesses. Eversource provided invaluable assistance via its generous Community Impact Grant to The Spirit of Waterbury. "We're so excited to be part of this magical day, especially now that many restrictions have lifted and we can safely gather in person again," said Eversource Community Relations Specialist Hedy Ayers. "We've partnered with various Waterbury organizations and nonprofits through the years, and it's so important to us to continue supporting our communities and their wonderful downtowns."
