Christmas is coming early for Harry Potter fans this year.
Barnes & Noble stores nationwide are hosting events reminiscent of the Yule Ball from 2000's "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" on Dec. 9. The Harry Potter Magical Holiday Ball will feature music, dancing and giveaways, according to a release.
The company is inviting customers to wear "festive Harry Potter costumes" to the event.
Attendees of the Magical Holiday Ball will also be able to make custom ornaments, play trivia and other games. All participating stores will give away posters commemorating "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: The Illustrated Edition" to the first 100 customers.
