Our Halloween season public appearance tour begins on Saturday, October 1st – as we hit the big Geek’d Con at the Mercy Indoor Sports Center in Rockford, Il ! It’s a big two day event, with TV and film guests, comic book creators, vendors and more- and Sven will be there- signing autographs and posing for photos with you from 1 to 3 pm on Saturday ONLY! As always, please get in line early, since we may have to cut the line in order to finish on time. The Mercy Indoor Sports Center is at 8800 E. Riverside Boulevard in Rockford- for more info, please go to geekdcon.com .
On Saturday, October 8th- you have two chance to visit with Sven- first, at the famed Willowbrook Ballroom (is it true that it’s haunted?) for the Chicago Ghost Conference- where they’ll be holding a huge sing-and-dance-along to the “Svengoolie Stomp” with Svengoolie himself! (To participate, make sure you’re there by 11 am!) Rubber chickens, graciously donated by the Horrorbles store in BERWYN, will be on sale starting Friday at the convention, with proceeds benefiting the Make a Wish Foundation! Then, from 11:30 am to 1 pm, Sven will sign those chickens, pose for photos, etc. This event is free to convention ticketholders- and other fans who just want to meet Sven are ten dollars a family- or buy a chicken for $15. Convention-goers can meet ghost hunters , experts on the paranormal, and more! The Willowbrook ballroom is at 8900 Archer Avenue in Willow Springs, Il.
