Harry Potterfans are spoiled lately. In addition to a brand new store with all things wizard opening 90 minutes from Montreal, you'll have the chance to attend a Christmas ball inspired by the magical saga in Griffintown this winter.
Following the popular Bridgerton experience, this immersive event by Warner Bros. mimics the iconic Triwizard Tournament.
Available in both French and English, the two-hour enchanted dance parties have taken place several times a week since September 25 at the historical Salon 1861.
If you're like Ron Weasley and dancing is not your cup of tea, the experience promises plenty of other entertaining activities, including photo booths, themed snacks and drinks, as well as a sorcerer's market.
Dressing up is not compulsory, but you are encouraged to don a costume to really feel like a student at Hogwarts celebrating the end-of-year festivities with witchy peers — or you can purchase your own wizard robe and magic wand at the market.
Aspiring mages and witches must be at least 12 years old to attend the balls and guests under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. The venue is accessible for magicians in wheelchairs.
The final Yule Ball will take place on Sunday, January 29.
