Potterpalooza

Watch it

The seventh and final book of the Harry Potter franchise was released at midnight on July 21st, 2007. Lines were a mile long down Harvard St. in Allston, and the police presence was heavy.

If the integrity of the line was lost and, god forbid, someone lost their pre-paid ticket, they would be forced to wait a day or two to read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The tension was palpable. We stood in line for hours, silently acknowledging that a riot could break out at any moment.

We escaped with our lives. Barely.
