Back in October some friends of ours told us about Harry Potter Weekend, a local event put on by the Harry Potter fan group HP-Ohio. Some of their family had helped organize the event and asked if we’d like to go see it with them. Of course we said yes!

It took place at Loveland Castle, a small 10th century replica castle in southern Ohio also known as Ch√Ęteau Laroche.

We were greeted by Nearly Headless Nick as we waited in line to be admitted into the castle.

There were plenty of photo ops with the characters.

Gilderoy Lockhart and Professor Flitwick taught us the proper way to duel. Lockhart put on quite a dramatic show.

And got his butt handed to him, of course.

It was an incredibly fun event and it was great to get to interact with other Harry Potter fans. I picked up a few business cards and am eager to learn more about what this fan group does. Hopefully I can participate in future events!
