The Hogwarts Express will depart from Platform 9 ¾ (aka Tae Lane) on a daily basis. See if you can gain access to Platform 9 ¾ along with your luggage. Opportunity to take photos on the Hogwarts Express.

Harry Potter will arrive on his Nimbus 2000 ready for Hogwarts renowned game – Quidditch. See if you can spot the golden snitches as you go. Try and determine which house you belong to by putting on the Sorting Hat and discover whether you are a Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin.

See Snape (Potions Master at Hogwarts) as he dabbles with his potions at Slug & Jiggers Apothecary close-by. Watch the mandrakes as they grow in a well-watered spot on the green. It is rumored that mandrake roots resemble human figures and possess magical powers, including a fatal scream.

Free a house elf by donating a sock to Dobbys basket. Watch out for Aragog as he descends upon the festival. Pay a visit to The Three Broomsticks to taste the famous Butterbeer associated with Hogsmeade.

On each Sunday of the festival we will a special appearance of the Flying Ford Anglia, which is a light blue Ford Anglia 105E Deluxe that was modified by Arthur Weasley to fly, as well as to become invisible.
