Sorting Hat Ceremony
You heard me, your kid can participate in an official sorting hat ceremony while in the family zone at Fan Expo Vancouver this year. And to put the icing on the cake, while supplies last, they can also snag themselves their house pin to commemorate! You can finally make your way to Hogwarts with a little help from Fan Expo.
Hogwarts Photo Op
Once you have found out which house you belong to, make your way to the Hogwarts photo op area where you can dress up and arm yourself with a wand and get that Hogwarts class photo you always dreamed of. If you are lucky maybe you can convince the yearbook committee at your school to use this photo vs. your real school photo!
Armed with your class pin, class photo you will be ready to get out there and learn all about Quidditch Canada! That is right we have our own Quidditch group and they will be on site to show you the ropes and help you get in on a game yourself before you head home. Jump on those brooms and take a chance at catching the golden snitch just like Harry!
Color The Colorless Cafe
That’s right, every kid can take their hand at decorating the amazing colorless cafe space. They have lost all their colors and the kids have to help them get it all back by getting in there and coloring up a storm. This is a great spot for parents to relax for a second while the kids aggressively color this incredibly fun space.
Fun With Science World
Oh yes for all our little science enthusiasts Fan Expo has invited Science world to come out and get messy with the kids. Science world will have demos and some great hands on learning all throughout the expo weekend. Take a moment and learn while you get messy and make mistakes in true Miss Frizzle fashion.
Design Your Own Mario Cart Level
Mario Cart lovers in the house?? Then you wont want to miss out on the chance to design your very own Mario Cart level – just the way you have always wanted it to be. You can make it as hard or as easy as you like and learn a little bit about coding and game building along the way!
Fan Expo will even be hosting their own little craft zone for the little kids. This is the perfect place to give them something to do while they rest their feet for a bit as Fan Expo is a big place for little legs. Give them something to take home or give to someone else – a great little stop or imagination along the way.
Oh yes there will even be dance parties happening in the Family Zone with great music and lots of prizes given away. So make sure you get those dancing shoes on and get ready to make some noise for those giveaways cause I hear they are going to be pretty fantastic!
The real icing on the cake this year? They will have a KIDS COUPON so kids 6-12 can get in FREE – this needs to be PRINTED off and brought to the expo in order for redemption so please so read and follow instructions accordingly as this will help you save some money when taking your big family to the best expo of the year!
