FOXBOROUGH - If you are like me, you are currently in the middle of some post-holiday melancholy. The holiday season is filled with such warm feelings and special memories that to come out the other side of it in January can often leave one wondering what else there is to look forward to as you stare down the barrel of another year. Compounding this with the dreariness of a Massachusetts winter and the melancholy can seem quite severe. Fortunately, there are a number of winter-exclusive events that take place to fill this void and remind people about how great the winter season can truly be. One of the best examples of this comes from Patriot Place, which is now playing host to a pop-up event and location themed to the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

At the tea house, Alice in the Village, at Patriot Place, a Harry Potter pop-up event has taken hold and will be there throughout the remainder of the winter! Here, guests can take some of the famed classes from Hogwarts, like Potion Making 101 (which was taught by Professor Severus Snape in the canon) and Fortune Telling (which was taught by Professor Sybill Trelawney). Additionally, fans are encouraged to deck themselves out in their Harry Potter apparel so they can read the Daily Prophet or get accepted to Hogwarts in style.

And what sort of Harry Potter experience would be complete without the myriad goodies from the universe? At this event, you will be able to try cake pops that are designed to look like the golden snitch from Quidditch. And of course, you can try a glass of butterbeer.

The event is $30 for children and $49 dollars for adults. It is open through to March 31 so there is plenty of time to visit!

This Harry Potter pop-up in Foxborough is not the only place where the fans of the boy wizard can show off their loyalty to the fandom. There are plenty of options to do this around the world. From the many touring locations of the on-stage production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to the shooting set locations in the United Kingdom to the Harry Potter-themed amusement park areas at Universal Studios in California and in Florida, the Harry Potter phenomenon is a big deal no matter where you go.
