As the moderator of the “Harry Potter Fans in Texas” livejournal community I was writing to get the word out of an event that may be of interest to Texan Harry Potter fans.
On Monday (Aug. 6) the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is hosting an event called "The Big Harry Deal." Slithering creatures and wizardly science demonstrations will be featured. Potter fans can dress up as a favorite character to compete for prizes, including Harry Potter hats, shirts and tickets to Omni Theater's 2D IMAX feature Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The party gets started with contest registration from 5 to 5:30 p.m. Judging for nine winners begins at 5:30 in four age groups (0-6, 7-12, 13-18 and adults) as well as Most Authentic, Harry-est Harry, Most Magical Creature and Best “Green” (environmentally friendly) costume. Everyone who wears a costume will win a free movie poster. Everyone who attends the 7:05 p.m. showing of the film will have a chance to vote for the best overall costume and recipient of the "Muggles' Choice Award."
Again the event is this upcoming Monday (Aug. 6). The party is 5-7 p.m. and 7:05 for the movie. The party is free and film tickets are $12, $10 children ages 3-12, seniors 60 and older. Tickets can be ordered online at www.fortworthmuseum.org or by phone at 817-255-9540. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is located at 1501 Montgomery St. Fort Worth, TX 76107.
