Here lies the final chapter in the 2016 Year in Review series. You might be asking you self: why are you releasing the last part in October of 2017?

Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.

Anime Park 2017

Welcome to Anime Park! We are a small convention located in Canton, Michigan one of the only known cons run by only high schoolers! Here at Anime Park we like to connect otakus  in an event we like to call an anime convention. Anime Park offers most things that larger, more established cons provide, like our dealers room, artists alley, a maid cafe, panels and so much more! The best thing about about Anime Park is that admission is by donation, and any profit we make goes right back into making this convention even better!

Our convention will open to the public at 10am on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Opening ceremonies will be at 10:30am. The panels and the dealers’ & artists’ room will run from 10am-5pm. Our cafe will be open from 11am-5pm. Closing ceremonies will be from 5:30-6pm and we will close the convention promptly at 6pm.

Ah, Summer. Beautiful, sunny weather without a hint of snow in sight. Con season is in full swing and outdoor festivals appear to entertain you. I can only be inside of convention halls and hotel rooms for only so long before the freedom of outside beckons me. Just like the Lovin Spoonful said, “Despite the heat, it’ll be alright”.
