Georgia State Railroad Museum and Savannah Children’s Museum will transform into a magical fall festival for a Harry Potter-themed day of fun

Some CHS community partners will also be leading workshops, including Snapology with Harry Potter LEGO building, Savannah Stage Company with a cast of some of our favorite Harry Potter characters, and the Solar System Ambassadors providing Astronomy lessons. Leopold’s Ice Cream will be on-site serving Harry Potter inspired sweet treats.
