Harry Potter Magical Holiday Ball at Barnes & Noble 2016

Earlier this month a number of Barnes & Nobles held a special event for fans of the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. We ended up at the The Americana at Brand in Glendale’s Barnes & Nobles store for the festive fan get together where we took a few photos of the attendees in their best wizard/witch attire.

While it was a nice event, it wasn’t exactly organized well with a number of stores making it a ticketed event (some at the last minute) in which a number of fans weren’t able to get in. But you can’t really blame them because Harry Potter is such a huge fandom that it would be difficult to operate multiple events at this scale efficiently and well (perhaps take a page out of the Star Wars Reads Day event held by a number of libraries across the country). It’s still really great to see them do something for the fans. Hopefully if it’s going to be held again, it’ll be put together better.
