A massive ‘Harry Potter’-themed dance party is coming to San Antonio in October, Quidditch pong and all


Get your dress robes ready -- it’s time for the “Wizarding Event of the Year.”

WizardFest, a “Harry Potter”-themed dance party, is set for Oct. 10 in San Antonio.

According to the Facebook event, the party is taking place at The Rock Box and will feature butterbeer (for witches and wizards over 21) and other Potter-themed drinks, a costume contest and Quidditch pong.

The event doesn’t go into detail about what type of music is played at a dance party for witches and wizards -- fingers crossed for The Weird Sisters, a fictional-turned-real band featuring members of Pulp and Radiohead who played a catchy tune called “Do The Hippogriff” in a (mostly) deleted scene from “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”

Tickets for WizardFest start at $16 for an advance general admission ticket, but there are other packages at higher prices: the wand package, which features a custom-made wand one of the four house colors; an early access pass; a skip-the-line pass and a supreme package featuring a wand, a skip-the-line pass, a goodie bag and early access.

It’s sure to be a *magical* time.
