The Town In Vermont That Transforms Into A Magical Harry Potter Wonderland

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to do a little magic now and then? Imagine what it would be like to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Well, since we’re Muggles (non-magical folks) we can’t exactly summon our broomsticks to go for a ride, but that didn’t stop students at Middlebury College in Vermont from doing the next best thing! In 2005 the first Quidditch team was assembled in Middlebury and it has grown by leaps and bounds since then with schools from Florida, Ohio, Texas, Massachusetts, New York, Maryland, California and Connecticut assembling teams of their own. If you’re a Harry Potter fan in VT, you’ll love seeing a game of Quidditch in person… No magic required.
