From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
On a cold but sunny day, there is chaos outside Wonka's Factory. All of the winning children are there with their parents, except Charlie who is there with Grandpa Joe.
The crowd starts shouting to see which of the children they can recognize. One by one, they see them all: Violet Beauregarde, Augustus Gloop, Mike Teavee, Veruca Salt, and Charlie (who, they notice, isn't wearing a jacket on this cold day).
At ten o'clock on the dot, the iron gates begin to open, and out walks Mr. Willy Wonka.
