Magic on Main Street

Things are getting a little spooky in Wilmington, Ohio. On July 15, a block of Main Street will turn into a world of witches and wizards eagerly awaiting the release of the latest Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," which goes on sale at midnight.

Step inside Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (the General Denver Hotel), where the sorting hat will determine your seating at the banquet tables for the Start-of-Term Feast. Afterward, kids can join a costume parade, while adults browse the Diagon Alley shopping area. Keep an eye out for the Dwarf Winged Horse, live owls and, at midnight, a unicorn.
