Harry Potter’s back, and brooming it into Old Town
Old Town’s Likely Story Children’s Bookstore is hosting a large Harry Potter book release party on Friday, July 20 from 8 to midnight.  There will be activities from the King Street Metro down to the Waterfront.

Gadsby’s Tavern is hosting Apothocary tours, the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra will be playing the movie score, there will be palm readers, costume contests and more. 
“Harry Potter is the biggest selling children’s book of all time,” said Dinah Paul, owner of A Likely Story. “It should be a great event for the whole city.”
