The magic of Harry Potter is closer than we all think.
In Seattle, Jon Chambers decided to recreate the streets of Diagon Alley rather than taking his daughter to Universal Studios!
Jon told E! News that the idea came about a few months ago, "In the summer of 2017, I was having a conversation with my girls, Haley and Avery, about doing something fun for Halloween this year. In their minds there was only one choice, a Harry Potter theme. My youngest daughter Avery said 'Diagon Alley' emphatically. I said 'Ok." The girls rushed outside, grabbed their sidewalk chalk and drew out plans for Diagon Alley.
Jon tells E! News the entire project cost $3K out of his own pocket, and shared the finished product that included snow falling on the ground, 3D props and more than six storefronts!
