The moved up the date for the release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie

The release party for the final Harry Potter book promises to a very big deal. The entire town of Old Towne Alexandria is involved, including Gadsbys Tavern (which was frequented by George Washington) and many other businesses. We are creating a marauders map and there will be a shuttle (called the knight bus) carring people up and down king street. There will be costume contests, live music (we are trying to engage a wizard rock band), and there will be some kind of gifts/prizes for visiting each location on the map. Local businesses are involved – the tavern (above), the apothecary museum, candy shops, ice cream shops, toy stores and of course, the local bookstore- and each of them are doing something special to honor Harry Potter. The band will be playing at the historic train station (looks like 9 3/4). I am currently working on the website to promote it and will keep everyone posted.
I just found out that the Cleveland Symphony is doing a Lord of the Rings symphony on July 21 – They are the top-ranked symphony in the country AND Howard Shore will be conducting.
