In less than two weeks, we will be panelists for the first time at AthCon! We’re very excited about this, and want to encourage everyone to come!
“AthCon returns to Athens! The same company that brought you “May the 4th Be With You: A Star Wars Themed Fundraiser” in 2013 is back with out of this world fun. Programming includes Anime, Comics, Star Wars and Kids Tracks. There will also be a Pathfinder Gaming Room, a Monstrosity Championship Wrestling Event, a Cosplay Contest, and a Masked Costume Ball with a cash-bar. The 501st Legion will make a stellar appearance and present a Star Wars discussion panel. In addition to photo ops with costumed characters, a life size Tardis from the hit series Doctor Who will be available for AthCon revelers. Kids can also enjoy face painting as they stroll through our galaxy far, far away.
Star Wars themed activities include a mini staged reading of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, Tea Time in the Cantina with music and trivia, a children’s light saber creation station, and an X-Wing Fighter game demo. Star Wars themed merchandise will be for sale, along with AthCon masks and t-shirts. The 2nd Annual AthCon will be held at the Holiday Inn Express 513 W.
