Chasing Harry Potter in Ontario, Canada – Festivals and Performances to Attend or Avoid

Chasing Harry Potter in Ontario, Canada – Festivals and Performances to Attend or Avoid

What to do as a Harry Potter fan who lives in Ontario, Canada, far away from either the Universal Parks or the Studio Tour? Attend Ontario-based festivals and performances! Once again, I got the opportunity to explore another way to celebrate my love of Harry Potter – this time by attending two Ontario-based festivals and a two-man skit performance. I have to confess the festivals didn’t live up to my expectations, but there were still aspects that were enjoyable. On the plus side? The two-man performance honestly blew me away.
