Oh everypony. I’m so jealous of y’all. Because while I’ll be recovering from foot surgery, BronyCon will be throwing down big time. Cupcake decorating (OMGOMGOMGCUPCAKES), baseball, a mystery room, and the return of the Brony Bar Trot!
Think of me while you’re having fun. Nah, just go have fun. Read on for the full details!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 9, 2018
BRONYCON SHOWS THE BEST OF BALTIMORE WITH NEW THURSDAY EVENTS
(BALTIMORE) – BronyCon is in the fast lane towards Friday, July 27. But some of our friends who beat the traffic and arrive a day early need things to do once they arrive in Baltimore. We’re happy to announce we’ve partnered with four organizations to bring both attendees and interested locals the best of the city with this year’s Thursday events!
First, BronyCon is happy to announce a fundraising venture between the convention and the Baltimore Orioles of Major League Baseball. As one of the U.S.’s best baseball cities, the team has always enjoyed a rich fanbase. We’re offering attendees a chance to be a part of this group with a special ticket offer. Those who purchase a ticket for the Thursday night game against the Tampa Bay Rays through our website will have $5 of their cost given directly to CureSearch for Cancer Research. The game is also a giveaway night, with attendees possibly receiving a shirt upon entry to the park. Camden Yards sits next door to the Baltimore Convention Center and tickets are in section 342 of the ballpark.
Those looking for a fun night on the town can enjoy a returning favorite: BronyCon’s yearly Bar Trot. The trot will visit numerous bars within the Fells Point area of Baltimore and will be done on foot with help from Food Tour Corp. There are 75 spots available for the trot and admission costs $16 per person.
A family favorite event returning this year is our cupcake decorating class with Charm City Cakes. Decorators will learn the basics during a fun cupcake class running from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM. Students will each receive 4 cupcakes, and learn how to cut, and prepare fondant to create their favorite MLP characters. Space is limited so act fast!
We’re happy to announce that BronyCon and Charm City Clue Room will once again be teaming up to put attendees mind’s to the test! Attendees have 60 minutes one of four rooms, including two brand new rooms: “Dark Carnival” and “Poe: Oval Portrait.” Discounted rates are available all weekend with promo codes located on our website. Charm City Clueroom is located at 6 Market Place in the Inner Harbor at Power Plant Live. Clue Room will also be at BronyCon in person holding a separate escape room event as a activity for attendees to try out.
Finally, after last year’s successful PokémonGO walk, another is being spearheaded by enthusiastic Trainers and BronyCon staff. A start time and place has not been finalized, however interested parties can visit our Discord server at https://discord.gg/cRYyPNQ to discuss meeting up and potential ideas.
