HARRY POTTER AND HERMIONE GRANGER LOOK-ALIKES TO FACE OFF FOR FUN, PRIZES OCT.12 DURING EMU'S FAMILY DAY FESTIVITIES.

YPSILANTI - Dozens of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger look-alikes will face off for fun and prizes during Eastern Michigan University's annual Family Day celebration, Saturday, Oct. 12, noon &emdash; 4 p.m. The festivities take place on EMU's main campus in Ypsilanti.

The look-alike contest, sponsored by Coca-Cola and WDRQ 93.1 FM, begins at 2:30 p.m. at EMU's McKenny Union. Winners take home a set of four tickets to a VIP showing of the new Harry Potter film, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," which premieres Nov. 12.

Even if you don't resemble either character, you can still win great prizes by competing in a quiz about Hogwarts University and its secrets.
