Harry Potter fans are anxiously waiting for the release of the latest book in the internationally acclaimed series.

Some in Burlington are throwing a party to celebrate.

At Phoenix Books Saturday night, Potter fans will be holding a midnight release party for the newest book in the series "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child."

To make the night special, there will be different games and activities based on the four houses of Hogwarts.

"Our Hufflepuffs will have group games, because Hufflepuffs like to be with friends. Slytherin are crafting, so we will have craft activities for them. Gryffindor are the brave ones, so we will have some sport like activities. Then for the Ravenclaws, the brainiacs, we will have trivia games and word puzzles,"Johanna Simmons from Phoenix Books said.

It's been nine years since author J.K. Rowling has released a book on the wizarding world of a young British boy and his closest companions.
