Comic and Anime Con Kits will be available for pick-up starting Friday, June 4 at 1:00 p.m. until Friday, June 11 at 6:00 p.m. Please remember that we are closed on Sundays.
Kits will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. We will have kits for kids and teens. Both kits will contain materials for the Sailor Moon Headband and Naruto Ninja Stars and other take-home fun activities, but Teen Kits will contain sample graphic novels that may not be appropriate for all audiences.
Recommended Age for all Activities
The content of all activities will be family friendly so all ages can attend. However, each activity is designed for recommended ages, and the pace of the activities may move more rapidly for older audiences. Additionally, supplies provided in kits may not be suitable children under the age of 5.
Please register for the event with an email address that your can check to receive the zoom link and updates; phone numbers will not be called. Deadline for registration will be June 3.
