The Harry Potter Club added a magical touch to Barnes and Noble Night on Wednesday. Members hosted a wand-making table as well as a face-painting table in the children’s section of the store.

“We wanted to get people excited about the club to join next year,” sophomore Zoe Boyer said.

The club’s festivities attracted a diverse group of people throughout the night.  From baby boomers to little children, and numerous nationalities, all were eager to participate in these spell-binding activities.

“I think the best part was every time a kid would walk by, they would get really excited and they would drag their parents over,” sophomore Kayla Aranda said.

Even though the Harry Potter Club’s tables were mystical to many onlookers, their sponsor Maggie Molledo said she plans to make some changes for next year’s event.

“It would be nice if we can have all of us in one area because I couldn’t even see where the face-painters were,” she said. “It would be nice to have us all in one Harry Potter section.”
