Halloween Robot Parade & Global Robotics Arts Festival 2014

Halloween Robot Parade & Global Robotics Arts Festival 2014
October 25, 2014 9am-4pm

For those who are into robotics, this will pique your interests. Macomb Community College with cooperation with Lawrence Technological University will host this RoboFest event. The parade will consist of robotic floats. Expect at least a ghost or a ghoul in the parade since it will be close to Halloween. Afterwards, the Global Robotics Arts Festival takes place. Robots will be in costume and dance. Robots will paint. There will be robotic music as well. The best thing about these robotic displays: it’s student driven from many age and class levels. Mark this on your calendars.
