Our town is having a Harry Potter festival this August, and I couldn’t be more excited! Waynesboro PA is South Central, very close to the border of Maryland. We are about 1.5 hours from both Baltimore & DC area. August 18th and 19th Waynesboro’s downtown will become a festival for wizards and muggles alike! You can find all the event details here
. Lesley and I will each be teaching a HP themed ceramic class.
If you know me at all you will know I not only love Harry Potter, but also themed parties. For my class we are making Leaky Cauldron mugs (which of course will not leak, but are named for the pub in Diagon Alley. While my mug is a plain cauldron I will also have carving tools and Potter themed stamps incase you would like to customize your mug with text or drawings. I am making butterbeer and treats from honeydukes for my class to enjoy while we handbuild our mugs.
You can sign up for either (or both) classes on our website here
The guild is also working on all kinds of Harry Potter themed ceramic fan art which will be for sale at our shop all weekend long during the festival.
During our last road trip of the Summer we decided to stop in Mister Ed’s on our way to Lake Tobias. Shari had never been and there was no way we could just drive by without sharing the fun that is Mister Ed’s
Part candy shop & part free elephant museum Mister Ed’s has something for everyone. There is a fun outdoor garden area and woods you can walk through. The elephant museum is bigger and better then ever, and they have a really fun selection of candy. Located in Orrtanna, PA (this is between Chambersburg & Gettysburg PA) they are open every day, and worth a stop in your ever find yourself in the area!
