A dedicated father of two daughters in Seattle, USA has built a life-sized Diagon Alley in his own driveway.
As a lifelong fan of Harry Potter himself, Jonathan Chambers has created a stunning replica of the infamous wizarding shopping street from Harry Potter. He quit his job and starting on this crazy project, spending a few thousand dollars on construction. By November 2nd they had accumulated 3000 visitors- and have raised over $500 so far. The money raised will go towards creating a two-story Gringotts Bank playhouse, with the remaining money going to Pancreatic Cancer Research.
Chambers even received a retweet from J.K. Rowling herself!
The family-built Diagon Alley is open to the public throughout the new year, and next April (2018) the playhouse structure of Gringotts will be auctioned off at Whittier PTA Auction.
In early December the Chambers family will be holding an event at Diagon Alley so fingers crossed their Gringotts will be ready by then!

Mr Kipling has been a part of British culture since 1967; a promise to be baker-quality produce, and their slogan “Exceedingly good cakes” helped make the company a household name by 1976. They first joined forces with the Dahl Estate last year but this time round they are rolling out the produce for every supermarket- and wholesale.
