Harry Potter-Themed Event Planned Saturday, May 6
LANCASTER, PA — Wizards and book-lovers will unite at the second annual Literary Festival during Lancaster Spring ArtWalk. And organizers would like you to get dressed in your best Harry Potter character costumes for this year’s family friendly party that benefits Church World Services.
The free event, which includes light refreshments, Harry Potter-themed games, live music, circus acts, and various activities, will be held in the parking lot courtyard and Warehouse D at the Candy Factory at the rear of 324 N.

Fair-goers are asked to bring a donation of books for CSW’s refugee resettlement programs.
Live music will be provided by local bands, Vin Fischer, Talk Alliance and Hilltop Gamblers. Henna tattoos and face painting (of various complexities and pricing) will be provided by Alicia Lyter, as well as Harry Potter-themed caricatures by Cory Lally.
