Anime Park IV

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!

Sue Peel’s Mad Hatters, Steampunk Celebration for GLFB

How do you celebrate Sue Peel’s collection of over 100 hats? Well that’s easy…have a Capitol Steam party. That’s right folks, we are throwing another steampunk* party but this one has a twist. We are throwing this party in Sues name but the door proceeds are going to the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
*There’s two simple rules:
1. Wear a hat (the crazier the better)
2. Admission will be two cans of food (non perishables) minimum or $5.
Sue Peel accepted my challenge and is on her way to 100 hats. Let’s accept this challenge and raise 100 cans of food for GLFB.
Van Helsteam is in! He’ll be back to fill the room with amazing music we all love to hear.
Special guest performance by legendary group, The Madd Hatters Guild.
Have your picture taken on an original 1910 camera and purchase the tin type print from photographer Victor Vague.
Also, Candice Wilmore will be returning with her digital photography.
Don’t miss this opportunity to join Cap Steam friends while supporting an amazing cause.
(Steampunk, Pirate, or Ren Fare Attire preferred but not mandatory. Hats however are. lol)
