Harry Potter and the Prudent City Council

[Edgerton, Wisc…] After hosting a Harry Potter festival for two years, the organizers said they were $100,000 in the red and wanted the City of Edgerton to pick up some major expenses for this year. They predict the festival will draw over 100,000 people this year, and that all those visitors will benefit the city. The list of items they requested from the city would cost taxpayers around $200,000. They said if Edgerton isn’t willing to pitch in, a lot of other cities would be happy to take their now famous Harry Potter Festival away from them.
