Harry Potter Day

Big Thompson’s 5th Grade Harry Potter Day came about because of the students’ love for J.K. Rowling’s wondrous stories. Several students organized a petition asking for one day on which they could dress up as their favorite characters from the series.  They ended up with 45 signatures, and it was decided to celebrate it on February 12 to coincide with the Fire & Ice Festival, where a bit of Harry Potter magic found its way to Loveland. Paula DuPré Pesmen, associate producer for three Harry Potter films, and actor Devon Murray, who played Seamus Finnigan, visited our community, along with a Ford Anglia exactly like the one the Weasleys owned in the films.  What with all the excitement happening downtown, February 12 was the perfect day for the students to show their Harry Potter passion, and as many of them said, “It was the best day EVER!!!”
