The Houston location already has several sold-out sessions; guests are highly encouraged to purchase their tickets now, available exclusively at harrypotteryuleballcelebration.com/houston/.
Taking place at the illustrious Paraiso Maravilla, the 2-hour experience will transport witches, wizards, and Muggles alike to a magical, whimsical world inspired by the iconic Yule Ball celebration. Starting with welcome dances and introductions followed by hors d’oeuvres and photo opportunities, the experience promises to be fun-packed and is designed for groups, couples, and even sole guests, all of whom are encouraged to dress up in their best formal Wizarding World attire.
“Harry Potter: A Yule Ball Celebration” will also host a “Champions Waltz”, a dance-off, and a fashion parade for guests to show off their Yule Ball looks. Two Masters of Ceremony will host the course of events, performing enthralling acts right beside the guests along with four cheerful Hogwarts house representatives, who will spread their house cheer throughout the show.
At the event, attendees can enjoy a Yule Ball Market featuring branded merchandise and themed drinks as they roam around freely at their own pace and indulge in delicious traditional British fare, including bangers & mash, shepherd's pie, tea sandwiches, themed beverage selections to quench their thirst, and, of course, the beloved Butterbeer.
