Peli-CON October 29-30 in Fairhope
Faulkner State Community College’s Animation & Visual Effects program has the Fairhope Campus and the community gearing up for Peli-CON, the College’s inaugural comic and cosplay convention.
Peli-CON, which is scheduled for October 29-30, will be held on the Fairhope Campus. Following the City of Fairhope’s Halloween Trick or Treat parade on Saturday, Peli-Con will invite all ghosts, goblins, superheroes and princesses for two days of family-friendly activities.
Peli-CON, a ticketed event ($10 for a day, $15 for a weekend pass) has a full schedule of events including a cosplay contest, a haunted house, anime films, concerts and workshops.
Saturday night, the high-energy band Turbo Crab will take the stage at the Halstead Amphitheater. Then, attendees will fill the lawn with blankets and chairs to watch a movie at the Amphitheater. Meanwhile, in the Centennial Hall Auditorium, the French Film Series will feature a horror film for those brave enough to watch beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Sunday hosts a slew of different activities with the Fairhope Youth Orchestra and the Mobile Opera performing at the Halstead Amphitheater. After the musical entertainment, Peli-CON’s first Cosplay Contest will light up the stage of the Amphitheater.
The Haunted House will be open both Saturday and Sunday.
The Animation & Visual Effects Program has worked for months to develop a comprehensive schedule for all ages to enjoy. More importantly, the ticket proceeds support future students and the program.
“Our Animation & Visual Effects Program created the event to raise money for scholarships for prospective students,” Steven Hussey, Animation & Visual Effects instructor, said. “The proceeds from the event will directly benefit students coming into the Animation & Visual Effects Program, which is based on our Fairhope Campus.“
Tickets can be purchased at the gate, which opens at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. All three Faulkner State campuses and numerous venues in Fairhope are selling tickets.
