Ever wish you could re-do prom? Dressing up, the lights, the music...the magic? Savannah, get ready for an evening more magical than any dance you've attended before.

Feel like paying homage to your most beloved wizard-themed character or other famous wizards and witches? All are encouraged to join us as well! There will be a Wizard & Witch Costume Contest were you can show us your charm while you step into the shoes of characters we all know and love....or for those wizarding professors out there, we all love to hate. While costumes are strongly encouraged, they are NOT required, as we are fans of non-wizards too! NOTE: Muggle clothing is requested to be semi-formal to formal (i.e. no street wear allowed)!
• ATTIRE: Get dolled up in your house color dresses, ties, or even your house robes or if you want to tap into your inner Potter character and wear a costume, please do! HOWEVER, street wear (i.e. jeans, sneakers, t-shirts) are frowned upon by the headmaster!

SAVANNAH STATION HISTORY: The building was originally constructed in 1902 as a stable for horses that hauled freight wagons for The Southern Express Company. In 1918, it was sold to The American Railway Express, which in its day was synonymous with United Parcel Service of today, and was used as a garage and truck depot for their commercial trucks. In 1969, the building was sold to Taylor Furniture Company to warehouse furniture and was eventually used as a garage for tour buses. In early 1997, it was bought by two Savannah businessmen for the purpose of renovation into an elegant event facility. Now called SAVANNAH STATION, the building has 12,000 square feet of event space perfect for local Savannahians, tourists and conventioneers and an ideal spot for the Savannah WIZARD PROM!
