Eric Bosch, dressed as Albus Dumbledore, The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry headmaster, paints his magic wand as he and other children take in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone at the Red Deer Public Library on Friday. “I’ve had this costume since I was five and it still fits,” said the 11-year-old. The library hosts another day of free Potter movies and activities on Monday, with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at 10 a.m., Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at 1:30 p.m. and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at 5 p.m. The two days of events are in advance of the release of the new Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie on Wednesday.
