How To Make Adventure Time Comics is the name of a short presentation that Meredith and Ryan will give on stage at The Central, 603 Markham Street, just next to The Beguiling. They’ll take questions from the audience! It’ll be fun!
7PM: Costume Contest for Grown-ups in front of The Beguiling!
Do you have a burning passion to be dressed up as FINN or JAKE or LUMPY SPACE PRINCESS almost solely for the bragging rights of winning a contest? Then show up dressed as one of the characters from Adventure Time at 7PM, and Celebrity Guest Judges Meredith, Ryan, and secret-judges-to-be-named will pick the winner! (IF IT IS RAINING THE COSTUME CONTEST FOR GROWN-UPS IS CANCELLED. No space to do it inside the store, sorry!).
