Last night four groups of children represented Harry, Cedric, Fleur and Viktor in the Tri-Wizard Tournament. They competed against one another in a series of three tasks where they use courage and daring to steal the golden egg from the dragon, saved their loved ones from the Black Lake and the clutches of the merfolk by creating gillyweed bathbombs and finally navigated their way around the maze and located the Tri-Wizard cup. They also had the opportunity to interact with some owls.
