Kent Potterfest -- Kent, OH

Yesterday we attended a first time event hosted by Main Street Kent. I'm not sure that anyone knew quite what to expect from Kent Potterfest, because the crowds ended up being pretty overwhelming (more on that later), however, I suppose an overwhelming crowd of Harry Potter fans is the best type of crowd to ask for at an event with long lines. There were multiple 21+ Potions Classes throughout the evening as well as some classes for kids. However, the evening events were all sold out by the time we looked at attending them. Luckily the Leaky Cauldron (known as Venice Cafe to Muggles) added a 21+ Potions Class for 2:00 p.m. and although the actual Potterfest activities didn't start until 6:00 p.m. I think we lucked out by being in Kent much earlier than the crowds. The Leaky Cauldron was prepared to show us how to make a variety of Potions.  The first potion was a Kreacher Komfort complete with Southern Comfort, Peach Schnapps, and Iced Tea. Next u
