'Tis the season to enjoy family and friends with holiday parties that last through New Year's. Seriously, Christmastime in Buffalo is magical. We have great events throughout Western New York, plus our weather fits the holidays perfectly.

One of the most popular books or movies in pop culture of our lifetime is Harry Potter. We all know someone or multiple people who are diehard Harry Potter fans (my fiancee is one of them), and if they love Harry Potter and this time of year, then surely they will love what's coming to Buffalo next Friday.

The Harry Potter Yule Ball at Buffalo Iron Works will take place next Friday, December 10th!

People can dress in their official house gear (Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw) and enjoy a night of food, drinks, games and much more.

There will be food vendors there, along with plenty of Butterbeer, which is a must at any Harry Potter event.

You can test your knowledge with Harry Potter Trivia. There will also be games, a DJ on hand with dancing, plus Quidditch games!

If you have never been to Buffalo Iron Works, it's in the Cobblestone District, a stone's throw away from KeyBank Center. It's right across from the left-side parking garage at KeyBank Center.

The party will start at 8 pm and tickets can be found here.

This sounds like a blast. Harry Potter during the holiday season at Iron Works, and it's on a Friday night...talk about perfect!
