Green Valley Teens and Youth helped kick off the new movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince with a grand party in the great hall of Hogwarts.
Teens celebrated with pumpkin pasties and chocolate frogs, Harry Potter trivia and were awarded IMAX and movie passes for best costume...best witch, best wizard and best muggle.
Children were sorted into their houses and enjoyed games, crafts, cauldron cakes and pumpkin juice. Quidditch relays, wizards-in-training sessions and a grand costume contest were part of the festivities. IMAX and movie passes were awarded for best over-all costume.
Special thanks to Regal Cinemas at Sunset Station for their generous sponsorship of this program.
