Get ready, muggles, as Lakewood is converting into a magical world this Saturday with the return of The Side Quest's annual Harry Potter Party. Bust out your Hogwarts robes and polish your wands because once the doors open at 4 p.m., all attendees should look the part.

The Side Quest Kitchen is offering wizard-themed food specials and specialty cocktails (including their out-of-this-world butterbeer) in addition to chocolate frogs and other delicious treats from Fear's Confections as well as butterbeer gelato from The Sweet Spot.

Free wand making with Professors Donna Ollivander and Maureen Gregorovitch takes place between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., but unfortunately, tickets to reserve your spot have already sold out.

For those missing out on wand making, divination professors Smoky Quartz Magick and Divination, St. Sparkle Bear and Marley of Northeast Ohio Paranormal Society will be on site gazing into your futures from 4 p.m. until midnight. Prices are determined based on reader, and cash is required for the lovely professor's services. First come, first serve.

For the evening crowd, Samuel Snape is offering a potions lesson featuring a dangerous cauldron of something boozy and delicious from 9 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.

Magic by Fawkes Feathers will be on display the entire party, and wizard professors will be roaming the bar testing your charm casting capabilities.

As always, The Side Quest is a 21 and older establishment and parking is available on the street or in their private lot. Whatever you do, don't park in the apartment building lot next door, because you will absolutely get towed.

The Side Quest is located at 17900 Detroit Ave. in Lakewood.
