It's that time of year again... Pittsburgh's Steel City Con
returns on April 5th, 6th, & 7th
! Will you be attending? Here's some details you'll want to check out!
First, the convention is located at the Monroeville Convention Center, which is located off the Pennsylvania Turnpike, and is minutes on the Parkway East from downtown Pittsburgh in Monroeville, PA.
The Monroeville Mall is the filming location for the original Dawn of the Dead, and is right beside the Monroeville Convention Center. It's a nice little attraction for zombie film fans who maybe want to check it out too.
There are several convenient hotels in the vicinity!
If you're planning on attending, it's highly recommended you Buy A 3-Day Pass Early
, as it gets you early admission into the show, and you also get a goodie bag valued at more than the price of the early 3-day pass itself. Hurry and order as time is running out!
Just today they announced the Goodie Bag included with the 3-Day pre-order includes a Star Wars figure too, so makes it more worth it for the SW fans.
The guest list is growing again, but two big names for fans of LFL... Guest List
Dave Prowse is back, and that's awesome but now Karen Allen's doing shows so the Indy fans are going to be happy too. There will also be members of the 501st Garrison Carida
on hand costuming and taking pictures with the fans! They're also always taking Star Wars Toy Donations
they'll hand out at children's hospitals throughout the year!
Likewise, members of the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society
(including yours truly) will have a booth set up. They'll be taking toy donations as well, and will also be selling their 2012 LFL sanctioned Charity Medallion
at the show, which is for a very good cause.
The PSWCS membership always dine after the show. Contact me privately either on here, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
, if you're interested in joining the dinner after the show, most likely Friday evening. It's very close to the convention center so even if you're from out of town it's easy to get to!
Look forward to seeing you at another great Steel City Con
