      If, like most people, you're a fan of Harry Potter, you 'll want to check out this annual gathering for wizard-minded folks of all ages. There are booths displaying wares including brooms, crystals, jewelry and even butter beer. There are sessions in charms and wand dueling and Quidditch. The latter is conducted by members of local college teams devoted to a modified version of the intense sport for wizards described in the books. And there's even a special late hours party just for the adult wizards. Excellent costumed impersonators of the various characters in the books stroll the grounds to make the magical atmosphere complete.
