Atomic Lollipop 2013 [August 2-4]



Official APOP thread GO!

The WHAT:

Quote:
Atomic Lollipop is a combined convention, carnival, music festival, and MASSIVE party entering its third year!

The 3-day event offers the usual convention attractions (vendors' room, artists' alley, fandom panels and workshops, etc), but our main priority is magic, mayhem, and getting messy so we’ve thrown in a ferris wheel, bouncy castles, aerial acrobats, nerdy burlesque, fire spinners and massive interactive events like a pillow fight, lightsaber battle, and “world's biggest nerf war” to the mix!

From hands-on workshops to crazy pARTicpatory activities and epic all-night parties, Atomic Lollipop is a unique convention experience designed for people who like to play, dance, discover, and geek out!

Like us at www.facebook.com/AtomicLollipop for the latest on special guests, new events, and ticket pricing!

Human Katamari sounds like it can be either amazing or terrifying. Or I guess both XD
