    It’s all part of the Harry Potter Weekend, a joint effort by the Chestnut Hill Business Association and Chestnut Hill College.

    NewsWorks reporter Jimmy Viola says the weekend began Friday night with a Potter-themed pub crawl in Chestnut Hill. Today, Potter fans will venture to the Germantown Avenue area for for an all-day Quidditch tournament.
