Hee hee. A HALifax convention, on the HALloween weekend. How fun.

Actually this bears some looking into. This is NOT an ongoing convention, but looks like a new group reviving an old Name, for it's Reputational value.

Although advertised as a not-for -profit ie fan run event, the proposed schedule bears a lot of resemblance to the so called "Gate cons" where programming is repeated each day with the same guests giving the same lectures, over and over. So far there has been no mention of ongoing activities that you would normally expect at a Science fiction convention, like a Hospitality suite for the attendees. Workshops being run by the exhibitors, a Masquerade competition, etc.

We shall have to see how things go, as time progresses. Aiming for 3,000 plus attendance, is a big goal at a weekend pass price of $45. pre reg. Unless they are counting one day sales in that figure. ( And it sure looks like their pricing schedule is geared for the Attendee who's only coming for one day.

I admit their website information is 3 months out of date, but the vendors don't seem to include anything specifically Anime, unless you'd count the Comics shops.

All in all I think I'll wait till closer to the event, and see how they update their website, and the chats on the forums go, before I buy a plane ticket.

I admit I never seen it before, but I think if it goes good they might continue it, as the other martime provinces are getting ads from it as well.

I am in saskatoon now working, but I go to school and live in halifax, so when I get back ill try to dig up some more info.
