The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is calling all wizards to gather on July 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. to cast their spells. This event sounds like a great opportunity for all Harry Potter fans to gather together and hone their skills. With more than three dozen inns on the grounds of the Botanical gardens, wizards can replenish their magical energy.

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden invites locals and visitors to bring their wands and head to the garden to play Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

Dave Forehand, Dallas Arboretum vice president of gardens, said, “Get your wands up, grab your Nimbus 2000, and zip over to the garden to test your skills at our four fortresses, eight greenhouses, and more than three dozen inns. What better realm to play in than ours!”
