Real-Life Hogwarts On the Way?

There are no more books and no more movies, but now Harry Potter fans have something to look forward to: a real-life Hogwarts may be on the way.

According to Entertainment WeeklyCollege of Wizardry is a four-day wizard school LARP (live action role playing) event that allows people to play wizard dress-up — learning the “magical arts,” meeting creatures and doing it all in a castle in Poland.

Yes, this is a real thing, a very real thing. So real, in fact, that College of Wizardry has a crowd funding site to raise the $50,000 it costs to host three sessions in November. One of these LARP events already played out for real in November 2014, and the sessions for April 2015 are already sold out.

But wait — there’s more! Now the founders are hoping to raise $1 million dollars by the end of their campaign, which is April 29th. If they do it, they plan to use the money to buy a castle.
