Young witches and wizards from Kar­ratha and Dampier par­tic­i­pated in the City of Kar­ratha’s Wizard­ing World event to celebrate 20 years since the re­lease of JK Rowl­ing’s first Harry Pot­ter book, Harry Pot­ter and the Philoso­pher’s Stone.

The pop­u­lar school hol­i­day event booked out in a mat­ter of min­utes when it was an­nounced last month.

Twenty kids flew their broom­sticks to Kar­ratha Library on July 11. On July 14, 16 at­tended Dampier Library to celebrate the pop­u­lar fran­chise’s an­niver­sary.

Not even Hermione Granger, Lord Volde­mort, Pro­fes­sor Snape, Dobby or Harry Pot­ter him­self could miss out on all the mag­i­cal fun.

The sorting hat sorted the witches and wizards into their houses, Gryffindor, Slytherin, Raven­claw or Huf­flepuff, where they bat­tled for the house cup by an­swer­ing Harry Pot­ter trivia.
