Including special holiday themed food and the Expecto Patronum Night Show, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Japan will host a ‘thrilling Halloween season’ for guests to the park from September 8th to November 5th 2017.

In a press release from Warner Bros & Universal Studios Japan, we were informed that Hogsmeade will be aptly dressed in Halloween decor, from bats and skulls to ornate garlands in shop doors, colorful jack-o’-lanterns, candles and ribbons.

Children are also invited to say ‘Trick or Treat’ to wizards working at the park to receive a special Halloween candy. Adults can also enjoy festive food, with the ‘Halloween Plate’ and a seasonal menu including juicy smoked chicken, pork ribs and a pumpkin pasty shaped like a jack-o’-lantern. Butterbeer Potted Cream will also be arriving this fall, so be sure to give that a try.

The Expecto Patronum Night Show will offer fans the chance to experience an themed interactive light show after sunset to close:

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind night show that uses magnificent projection mapping to bring the magic and wonder of Harry Potter to life. Watch in amazement as a group of Hogwarts students fight off a barrage of Dementors who have descended across the Black Lake and across Hogwarts Castle. The large-scale show that features chilling Dementors, brave students and defensive spells will leave fans exhilarated.
