Visit Harry Potter's Diagon Alley in Seattle

Ballard dad builds life-size scene from Harry Potter in his driveway

No matter your feels about Harry Potter, we can all agree that this Ballard dad has a cooler driveway than we do. 

Jon Chambers began planning a replica of Harry Potter’s famous Diagon Alley out front of his Seattle home last summer. It attracted a slew of witches and wizards over Halloween (more than 2,600!) but Chambers isn't done yet.

He recently added two new features to his Diagon Alley: Gringotts and The Leaky Cauldron opened to visitors the first weekend in December, when Dumbledore Santa also made an appearance.

Stop by to check out the amazing creations and immerse yourself in Harry Potter mania. Keep an eye on Chambers' Diagon Alley project website or Facebook for any changes to the scheduled dates and times.
