After one last hurrah over the weekend — a fundraiser for the Phinney Neighborhood Association — Ballard’s Diagon Alley is coming down.
Creator Jon Chambers posted these photos this morning of the gradual deconstruction of his magical project, which first debuted over Halloween. Over the next four months, Diagon Alley will be taken down, packed up and moved to Camp Korey, a Mount Vernon camp for kids and their families who are dealing with life-altering medical conditions.
Meanwhile, Chambers is still thinking about his next project: building a life-sized version of The Burrow from Harry Potter on a farm in Snoqualmie Valley. He said Warner Bros’ legal department told him he couldn’t build an exact replica, so he’s planning to create his own version of the crooked house.
