This last weekend April 8th was the first Colossus Con Pleasanton held at the Alameda County Fair Grounds. We arrived around 930am plenty of time to pick up our media passes and check out the layout. Pre sale line was already forming with the onsite sales line catching up. We experienced on and off rain throughout the day, with times of sunshine for outdoor photo opertunities. All activities held in the main building with panel rooms on the 2nd floor. Food was available for purchase at the snake bar in the corner of the building.
The event had plenty of vendors and artist along with featured guest and fan groups. Julie Dolan the voice of Princess Leia from Star Wars rebels was inducted as an honorary member into both the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion. Cobra 1st Legion (a GI Joe costume club) was on hand to see Michael Bell the voice of Duke. Other guest included Michael Hollander and Brad Hawkins from VR Troopers. Many more guest along with local Cosplay guest.
It was pretty easy to lose track of time with so many people in costume all having a great time.
This producer also produces Colossus Con Merced and Campbell con, after having such a great time in Pleasanton we look forward to these 2 other shows.
