Well, I'm getting a slightly late start on this, though I've had the idea for a while, finally putting up a thread for it ^^;
NorthEast Cosplayers Picnic in Philadelphia III!
So when's this thing?:
Saturday, April 24th; around 10AM to Sundown (or whenever everybody starts to get tired and leave 8D )
Where's it gonna be?:
Rose Tree Park, Media, PA; center field around gazebo and ampitheater. Located on 252 right off of Rt 1, which is also right off of 476. So it's very easy to get to by driving. Detailed directions below.
What else is up?:
Hope everybody can bring a nice variety of food. No barbeque this time. Because of the outdoor ampitheater, we may have some sort of mini-masquerade. Lots of open space, so could do frisbee or other outdoor stuff, heheh.
Who's invited?: EVERYBODY!
Costume or no costume! Just come out and hang out, have some fun outdoors with your fellow cosplayers/otaku in a non-convention environment for once ^__^
How the hell do I get there? (Directions)
Well, feel free to message me for specific directions from your location, but here's a general list of ways to get there.
Within the area
: Pretty much just hop on the Blue Route (I-476) to exit 5, which is the US Rt 1 interchange. Head for Rt 1 SOUTH (towards Lima). Once on there, drive about a mile up the road til the Rt 252 exit (Newtown Square, Media). Turn RIGHT off the ramp. After the Rose Tree Rd intersection (with the old house on the corner), the park will be on your RIGHT. Turn in the first driveway and park in the frontmost parking area.
From points northeast (NJ, NY): Hop on the Jersey Turnpike (I-95) til you hit the PA Turnpike (I-276). Take exit 333's LEFT LANE that goes south to I-476. Stay on 476 for a while, and follow the "Within the area" directions from there.
From points south (DE, MD): Take I-95 up into Pennsylvania. Take exit 7 onto I-476 North, then use the Within the Area directions.
I think you get the general idea of how to get there >.>;; If not, IM me or something for specific directions.
Public Transportation info coming soon.
There ya go!
