Ron Tonkin Field transformed into Hogwarts Thursday for Harry Potter Night at the park.

Hillsboro Hops fans were told to wear their robes and house colors for the game against the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes.

The night included Harry Potter-themed events like Quidditch and broom racing.

The Golden Snitch was even spotted around the stadium for photos.

People who dressed up for the game were able to enter a costume contest.
