Harry Potter Festival Preparing For Opening

Blyth | by Fadi Didi  

Finer details of festival being looked over, ahead of October 14th, 15th event.

Finer details are being sorted out in the second annual Festival of Wizardry, scheduled to run in Blyth.

Numerous bands and vendors are on the itinerary for the October 14th and 15th event throughout the North Huron town.

The festival was originally planned for the Town of Goderich, but earlier in the year announced the Blyth Arena and Community Centre would host the two-day event.

Organizer Nathan Swartz says a free shuttle has been organized for Goderich residents who hoped to walk to the event.

That shuttle will leave from Goderich District Collegiate Institute, taking patrons directly to the festival.

For those outside Huron County, Swartz says visitors will also be shuttled from the Walton Speedway.

Over 10 thousand tickets were sold to the event in Goderich before it moved to the North Huron town.

A 2018 edition of the Festival of Wizardry is also in the works, while an event based on the HBO series Game of Thrones is also in the works.
