As a part of our Harry Potter Day, we opened Diagon Alley for 2 hours. This was a non-registration event so anyone of any age could attend. The original plan was for volunteers to help staff the rooms and keep supplies filled, but all of our volunteers that day pulled a no-show. Luckily, all of our attendees were good sports and the adults helped to keep the stations filled.
The Leaky Cauldron
If you have Harry Potter Day, then you definitely need to serve butter beer. Our concoction was a mixture of vanilla ice cream, butterscotch syrup, and cream soda. Our local Meijer graciously donated all of our food supplies, plus cups and napkins.
Every wizard needs a wand. I used Brytani's idea (who was inspired by Pop Goes the Page) and precut 500 PVC pipes for magic wands. Each wand was stuffed with unicorn hair (sparkly white yarn), dragon hearts (red pony beads), and Phoenix feathers (orange feathers). We used Duct tape to wrap our wands.
Eeylop's Owl Emporium
Trying to find owl crafts for 500 people is a little tricky, but our pom pom owls turned out cute. We used 1 1/2 inch white pom poms and glued googly eyes, an orange fun foam beak, orange fun foam feet, and white felt wings onto each owl. Tacky glue worked best for this project.
