FRIDAY NIGHT WELCOME PARTY AND OPENING CEREMONIES
Come join us in the Valley Ballroom Friday night to kick off the con! Many of our guests will be on hand to say hello. (Please remember that this is a bad time to ask for autographs!) There’ll be some cool items auctioned off for our charities, and entertainment to round out the evening.
The Cocktail Party starts at 7:00 pm with the Opening Ceremonies beginning at 8:00 pm, ultimately ending around 10:00 PM. Dress can vary from everyday casual to cocktail dress to costume as it’s your choice to dress to your comfort level. This event is part of your Weekend or Friday-Only registration but to eat from the food bar you will need to purchase the Food Ticket add on through the “Register” tab for $30/adult (ask for child pricing). The food bar includes coffee, hot and iced tea and water for beverages. Other beverages can be purchased at the cash bar during the event. Full menu is listed below.
