Who: Open to all
What: Ice Skating & Photoshoot
When: Saturday, Jan. 9th, 3pm-6pm
Where: Ice on the Landing
Costs: Photoshoot, free. The park charges a rink fee and a small skate rental fee, if you wish to skate.
MomoCon and Anime Blast will be once again invading Chattanooga for fun and skating! Door prizes will be given away, courtesy of MomoCon on Tour. A photographer will also be onsite to capture the days events. Cosplayers are asked to leave all weapon-props at home for this very-public event.
The photoshoot is free, but skating has a small fee. All costume types are welcome, and we will be taking many shots in and around the rink and the surrounding areas.
‘Ice on the Landing’ is located right beside Chattanooga’s Tennessee Aquarium and right off of Chattanooga’s historic Ross’ Landing. Adjacent to our downtown and the river alike, ‘Ice on the Landing’ is perfectly situated so you can take advantage of both what makes Chattanooga the Scenic City and the bustling downtown nightlife that keeps tourists coming back once the sun has set. Thanks to a larger rink this year as well there’ll be even more room for all participants to skate, mingle, and in general have a fantastic time!
Anime Blast Chattanooga is an anime con based out of Chattanooga, TN that started in 2011. Since year 1 our goal has been to entertain, educate, and encourage the diverse array of fans in the area to band together and grow in their fandom.
MomoCon in Atlanta, GA is one of the fastest growing all ages conventions in the country. Fans of Japanese Anime, American Animation, Comics, Video Games, and Tabletop Games come together to celebrate their passion by costuming / cosplay, browsing the huge exhibitors hall, meeting celebrity voice talent, designers, and writers behind their favorite shows, games, and comics and much much more over this 4 day event.
*MomoCon and ABC are hosting the photoshoot, but the rink itself is available to any attendee wishing to pay the fee. Skating is at your own risk, and MomoCon/ABC will not be hosting any rentals or take responsibility for people or events on the ice rink.*
