Calling all Harry Potter fans: Diagon Alley exists and it's in Seattle


One dedicated father from right outside of Seattle has created a replica Diagon Alley on his driveway this Halloween. The project took two weeks and one day to create and debuted on Halloween. The project survived Thanksgiving, and is still standing and hosting curious tourists.

John Chambers said the idea came from his two daughters. He told KOMO in Seattle, "It's obviously gotten way bigger than I planned, 'cause the community came together, donated supplies, people are here all the time helping out."

He estimates that 2,700 people visited during Halloween weekend alone with thousands of more stopping by since. Chambers home is across the street from a local elementary school. He said every day after school kids come by to check out the alley.

Chambers has plans to continue adding to the project and would then like to send the installation up to Camp Korey, a camp for kids living with life-altering medical conditions. Donations from the project are being collected for Pancreatic Cancer Research.
