Potter Fest

Story and photos by Emily Steinhardt

Thousands of people wandered around Germantown Avenue on Oct. 21 as Harry Potter Festival took over Chestnut Hill. Attendees enjoyed everything from Butter Beer to brooms as they explored the 12 block festival that doubled in size since last year.

Chestnut Hill College was host to the Annual Philadelphia Brotherly Love Cup, a Quidditch tournament that local colleges could compete in.

The day was filled with costumes and characters from the books as people of all ages lived in the world of Harry Potter.

Avada Kedavra! Voldemort causes trouble all over the festival by picking wand fights with any Muggle who dares.
