Grand Hallows Ball

Bye Harry, it's been fun!A literary dynasty will end this week. With the release of the seventh J.K. Rowling book, the Harry Potter series of books will end with the publication of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". To celebrate the release of the historic novel Borders will host a Grand Hallows Ball on the evening of July 20th.

On Friday night, Borders will turn into a real Harry Potter festival in anticipation of the book going on sale at 12:00 a.m. midnight. Between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. there will be a range of wizardly activities, games, competitions, and giveaways. For all Harry Potter fans that pickup their copies on Friday night, Borders will be giving away a free limited edition poster. Of course supplies are limited, so once their gone, their gone.

Some of the activities planned include:

  • a Harry Potter spelling bee
  • the Great Snape Debate
  • Harry Potter character costume contest
I don't have confirmation, but I think that the event will take place only in the Plaza Las America Borders Store.
