SuperHero Summer Fest Roundup 2019 Edition
Community Cosplays, Vendors and Fun
It’s the second time Nerdbot has been at the Superhero Summer Fest , which has brought the community together to show that all of us can be heroes
On a tempered summer afternoon, at Alhambras Renaissance square, the SuperHero Summer Fest brought together the community, June 15, 2019. From 11-Five p.m. the event hosted several vendors, cosplayers, bands, Dj’s, performances as well as a Mayoral award ceremony.
Dj Provoke opened the event building up the crowd until the performance of Dj Lance Rock and the Awesome Band from Yo Gabba Gabba.
Then RagnaRock : Rock Band for the Universe, delighted the crowd with a set compiled with several rock classics as well as hits from popular cartoon/ TV shows.
After that, Jay Holiday(founder and president of Kids Can Cosplay) was awarded the Mayor’s Superhero Award for his works with local hospitals, shelters, schools and the community overall.
Then Poprock Super Summer Music and Dance Performance took the stage, followed by Saber Guild’s Lightsaber demonstration. The cosplay contest and a live performance by the Komeje Collective closed the event.
The square was littered with booths, selling products ranging from art pieces, toys, costumes, clothes and games.
With the maze like structure centered around a large stage where all of the performances took place. Several of the booths also featured local interest groups, community associations, actors/voice actors and local artists.
The free city event is not only designed to bring community together, and promote business , but also benefited the organization Music Saves Lives. A non-profit which specializes in blood donation.
During the entirety of the event the Sponsor Nerdbot Media, was sending patrons around the area, to finish a scavenger hunt in order to win free merchandise.
This way the event promoted the integration of local business, encouraging those who had arrived to check out what was in the area.
This event, organized by the community for the community, works on the principle that anyone can be a hero. That we can all put on a cape, rise to the occasion and come together to work on our problems together.
