Hamilton, N.Y. – The Colgate Bookstore will hold a costume competition in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on Tuesday, June 26th, at 4:30pm.

Costume judging will begin at 4:45pm, with prizes for adults and children. So get your costumes ready, Harry Potter fans!
In honor of the anniversary Scholastic is releasing stunning new editions of all seven books, with newly designed cover illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick, as well as the beloved original interior decorations by Mary GrandPré.
