FAN MEETUP RECAP: Harry Potter Trivia

Written by MEGACON Orlando Ambassador, Heather Bedor

Event: Harry Potter Trivia

Hey everyone! My name is Heather, and I'm one of your Fan Meetups Ambassadors. We have been doing some awesome events in the last few months and have even more incredible ones planned for the very near future!

Recently, Nadia (another one of your Orlando Fan Meetups Ambassadors) and I hosted a super "magical" Harry Potter Trivia Night. We had over 60 people playing, right from the comfort of their own homes (and even someone playing from their office at work!). Using the technology available to us like CrowdPurr and Zoom, we were able to see a ton of smiling faces playing our family-friendly game. There was some tough competition to see who would win the House Cup but in the end...it was Hufflepuff!

It was great to be able to "meet" everyone virtually and two attendees shared a really inspiring story as to how MEGACON Orlando helps bring people together. A few years ago, one of our attendees used to work with the other and they just so happened to be looking at pictures of their kids. Turns out, after all that time, they finally recognized each other because they both had a photo with their two little girls posing together at MEGACON. They became great friends after that discovery and now the girls are inseparable-- they also kicked some major butt in trivia too :)

The two attendees were nice enough to show us the pic that made it all happen. I hope you guys enjoy it and see that even though we may be physically separated, we can still find ways to connect virtually and through our fandoms. Speaking of fandoms, have you heard of a little something called Halloween Horror Nights? Are you still mourning the cancellation of the event? Fear no more! Nadia and I will be hosting a virtual HHN event on September 24th. You will hear from some of the ghouls and boys behind the scenes and reminisce about the past 30 years. Keep an eye out for the event in your email. We will see you there!
