Celebrating Harry's birthday


July 25, 2002|By Sandy Alexander

Happy birthday, Harry Potter! Celebrate the boy wizard's birthday with games and treats Wednesday at the Barnes & Noble in Towson.

The fourth book in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, will be released in paperback the day before the party. In this installment, Harry attends the Quidditch World Cup, competes in the Triwizard Tournament against two other schools of magic and continues to contend with the evil Lord Voldemort.

In honor of the book's release, party participants will compete in a dragon egg hunt (similar to one of the Triwizard tasks in the book) and play other games.

Party-goers are also invited to discuss their favorite parts of the Harry Potter series and speculate on what will happen in future books as they enjoy trivia, prizes, cake and ice cream.

The party takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble at 1 E. Joppa Road in Towson. The event is free, but registration is requested. Call 410-296-7065.
