Phoenix ComiCon 2012
During Memorial Day weekend the Arizona Ghostbusters made their 5th appearance at the local Phoenix Comicon. At our 20 x 40 foot booth we displayed our Ecto-AZ, Vigo replica, Real Ghostbusters arcade machine, miscallenous props, our new Ecto Containment Unit wall and 30ft Statue of Liberty balloon. We handed out daily AZGB buttons, temporary tattoos, Slime Hand Sanitizer, Diabetes Walk information and coloring sheets. We had great attendance at all of our panels and had over 2,000 zombies in the Friday night Zombie Walk which led to unanticipated street closures to compensate for the large numbers. We met awesome individuals in Samhain and Slimer costumes. Our new activity this year was the children's Ecto-Zone play area, where after completing several games, the kids recieved a Junior Ghostbuster certificate and pink slime sample. Hourly raffles were held at our booth to benefit the American Diabetes Association. From donations, hourly raffles, and our Real Ghostbusters arcade machine we collected $1,077 for the American Diabetes Association. We will continue to collect funds till the Diabetes Walk on October 6th. The convention ended with 33,000 attendees.
