RePop Gifts to Throw Boise's Harry Potter Birthday Bash


  • Harrison Berry
Officially, Harry Potter's birthday falls on July 31, but this year, that's a Wednesday. For folks who can't take Hump Day off to indulge in Harry Potter fandom, there's RePop Gifts, which will throw a party of its own for "the boy who lived" on Sunday, July 28.

Show up in Hogwarts garb and take photos against the green screen with props and replicas from the books and movies, enjoy refreshments and more.

The Harry Potter franchise inspired a generation of young people with its magical themes and even more magical characters. That generation is now handing over its dogeared copies of the books to its children.

"People are passing on to the next generation," said RePop Owner Millie Hilgert.

The party runs from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., and is free to attend at RePop's new location and 210 N. 10th St. in Boise.
