EntSun News/10892527
WATERBURY, Conn. - EntSun -- Witches and wizards will again flood the streets of downtown Waterbury!  Activities and other offerings include fire-breathing magic performances, the Tri-Wizard Challenge and a host of tricks, treats and wizardly eats from local restaurants and other vendors.  The free family fun of daytime will give way to an evening magic show at The Mattatuck Museum suited for adult audiences.

Start your magical journey by picking up your "Magic Map" at Minuteman Press, 170 Grand Street. The Map provides a listing of all venues and their offerings such as food, drink and shows.  The Silas Bronson Library's front lawn will feature activities including fire-breathing magic shows by Waterbury native Celtic Magician Daniel Greenwolf.  Daniel's shows will be at 12 and 3, but vendors of wands, treats and other items will be on the lawn 11-4.

Host of Waterbury Harry Potter Day, Cyril the Sorcerer, will officiate the Tri-Wizard Challenge, singing of the "Waterbury Harry Potter Day Song", and offer a few magics at 2:30 pm, prior to Daniel's final show.
