4th Annual Harry Potter Yule Ball

For my long time followers, you know that my husband loves Harry Potter and spends time each week reading Harry Potter during the lunch hour at two different elementary schools in his district.
 A few weeks ago was their 4th annual Harry Potter Yule Ball. 
Each year it gets more and more elaborate and the crowds get larger and larger!   They had over 260 kids in attendance this year!
The Grand Rapids Public Zoo was back with several of their magical creatures.

They even had quidditch lessons provided by the Grand Valley State University Grindylowe’s team.
The Knight Bus was also another popular returning activity.
As you can imagine, Chris was happy to wear his Professor Albus Dumbledore costume all evening.
Once again, the decorations were nothing short of fantastic. 
One of Chris’s amazing colleagues even created this Hogwart’s Express from several refrigerator boxes, while Chris supplied our Halloween fog machine for the steam.
Chris and all his amazing staff/parent volunteers really outdid themselves.
With Josie's 11th birthday happening in June, we've already decided that we will be recycling many of these activities and decorations for this year's birthday gala.
Until then, have yourself a magical week!
