Places and events that are perfect for fans of Harry Potter
Can you believe that the first Harry Potter book was published in 1997? I still remember reading it in High School English in the year 2000. And yet still today in 2019, the love for the wizarding world is still strong. It is a classic and still manages to capture the imagination of little ones.
