An evening at Hollywood Bowl – Tower Park

However, Eliza has been planning her birthday party ever since Sebastian had his Mad4Animals party back in June. Eliza decided on a Harry Potter theme for her birthday and requested that we used Mad4Animals to provide the entertainment as she had enjoyed Sebby’s party so much. Her main stipulation was that they brought animals from the film. As she shares a birthday with a classmate, we decided on a …
