See How 'Harry Potter' Fans Celebrate Albus Potter's First Day at Hogwarts

Fans flood London's King's Cross Station on September 1 to mark the first day of Harry Potter's son attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the first time.

AceShowbiz - Ten years after the last "Harry Potter" novel was published and six years after "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" was released in theaters, fans still remember this moment in the epilogue. September 1 marks the date Harry Potter's son Albus Severus Potter starts his first day at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In the book and the movie, Harry and Ginny send their middle of their three kids off to Hogwarts at King's Cross Station, where they run into a brick wall to get onto Platform 9 and 3/4s and the students board the Hogwarts Express that will take them to the school.

To celebrate it, fans flocked to the real King's Cross Station in London on Friday to send off Albus like they typically do every year. Fans counted down the minutes until 11 A.M., the exact time when the Hogwarts Express promptly departs the station.

There's no special event set up by Warner Bros. Pictures, which released the movies, or the books' publisher, but that didn't stop fans from commemorating the moment. Some of them brought "Harry Potter" merchandise, such as wands, Hogwarts robes and scarves.

J.K. Rowling took to her Twitter account to mark the special day. "Today's the day Albus Severus Potter boards the Hogwarts Express at King's Cross for the first time #19yearslater," she wrote.

The West End cast and crew of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" also celebrated Albus' first day at Hogwarts with a Hogwarts Express cake. %cJamie Glover%, the actor who plays Harry Potter, got the honor to cut the cake.
