MARIETTA — Donning robes and wielding magic wands, adult wizards and muggles proved fandom of the Harry Potter books and movies isn’t limited to kids.

The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art was transfigured into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on Saturday evening for a special gathering aimed at grown-ups, while children attended their own events earlier in the week.

Activities included potion making, a costume contest, a scavenger hunt, trivia and dancing.
