Calling all witches and wizards still waiting for their acceptance letter to Hogwarts. While you are waiting, put on your Gryffindor or Slytherin robes, grab your wand and head to a magical party.

Tracy pottery studio Color Me Mine will host a Harry Pottery Party from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday as part of its monthly Kids Night Out program. Kids (and kids at heart) are invited to dress as their favorite characters, grab their wands and come out for a magical evening.

The studio will also show the fifth Harry Potter movie, “Order of the Phoenix,” and will host a costume contest and a raffle to win different prizes, including Harry Potter pins and movies. There also will be cookies and chips for snacking.

The whole night out costs $20, and people can go early and purchase tickets or can go the night of and drop off their kids.
