FANTASEA: Queen Mary's Weekend w/ Academy of Magical Arts & Magic Castle April 8-10 | @TheQueenMary



Who doesn't love magic?  The thrill of the unknown and mystery of the slight of hand.  One of my favorite date nights involve watching musicians at the Magic Castle!  The Queen Mary is pairing up with the Magic Castle to introduce FantaSea: Magic Festival for a magical weekend and my family was invited to attend and share it with you!  As HUGE Harry Potter fans, anything magic, fascinates my family.
