"The Yule Ball is of course a chance for us all to — er — let our hair down." - Minerva McGonagall on the Yule Ball

Calling all Wizards, Squibs, and Muggles alike! The Yule Ball is an annual winter tradition - a formal dance for students of the famous wizarding school.

What you can expect:
- DJ to set the mood and bring the magic
- Decor (Sorting hat, House emblems, magical trinkets and baubles, Yuletide decorations, and more!)
- Formal Wizard Cosplay Contest. First prize winner receives a $50 cash prize (presented as a bag of US gold dollars, as the goblins wouldn't sell us any galleons) and free entry for the winner and a guest to next year's Yule Ball!
- Themed drinks and Butterbeer!
-Themed items from the world of witches and wizards (presented by Enchanted Ignis)
- Tickets will go on sale at the end of the day Thursday December 8 - $20 + Fees through Eventbrite. If the event does not sell out, tickets will be available for $30 at the door.
