Everyone We Saw at Ludlow Garage's Wizardfest Cincinnati Pop-Up

On Nov. 16, the Ludlow Garage transformed into the wizarding world beloved by fans of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Aptly dubbed Wizardfest, the one-night-only event is touring across the United States by way of Pop Up Party Tours. Of the festivities, guests put their knowledge to the test in trivia; participated in a post-Halloween costume contest, broomsticks in tow; and, for those 21 and over, guests meandered over to the Leaky Cauldron and kicked back with a Butterbeer or Polyjuice Potion. Adding to the magical atmosphere, a live DJ played tracks from the film franchise. There was also a sweepstakes prize for a London trip for two.
