Rochester muggles and wizards celebrate Harry Potter

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

Muggles and wizards alike celebrated all things Harry Potter Tuesday night in Rochester. 

The Rochester Public Library hosted a Harry Potter book night with all kinds of activities relating to J.K. Rowling's series. 

Kids could practice their quidditch skills, guess what was under Hagrid's beard, and make a wand. 

Lots of aspiring wizards showed up in their best robes and other costumes. 

"I think a lot of kids now have parents who grew up reading Harry Potter, and the characters and the make believe worlds are something kids can really identify with still and I think that's what kind of makes it a classic," said Sarah Joynt, Teen Librarian. 

The teen library Council organized the event. 

It's part of a world-wide celebration started by a publishing company.
