Wizards head to Savannah for Wizard Weekend
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah will become a little more magical this weekend as the city hosts Wizard Weekend.
The festivities begin Friday, June 15, for Wizard Prom at Savannah Station. The prom begins at 8 p.m. Participants will enjoy Potter themed costumes, food, and decorations.
There will be a trivia contest and pub crawl on Saturday, June 16, in downtown Savannah.
Markster Con, the company producing the weekend, says they expect the events to bring around 1,300 people to downtown. Many of this weekend's participants are actually from around the world. Some are flying to the Hostess City just to participate in Wizard Weekend.
Markster Con has hosted the special weekend in other cities, but it's their first time doing it here in Savannah.
"Savannah has the open-carry rule with drinks downtown, in the historic district...it's a fun party environment in a responsible way," Markster Con Owner Mark Baggett said.
Participants for all three events must be 21 years or older. Tickets are still available for these events. Click here for more information.
