If you grew up watching or playing Pokémon then your childhood was as good as it gets. And by that, we mean that the franchise is pretty stellar. San Antonio's PokéFest is back this summer and will give fans of Pokémon, as well as fans of all anime, a chance to relive their stellar childhoods.
PokéFest San Antonio has announced that it'll be returning to the city for its fifth year this summer, and it's coming back better than ever!
From Friday, July 17, to Saturday, July 18, you'll be able to come out with your friends and family to the Norris Conference Center for the event of the season.
The two-day convention is going to be jam-packed with console gaming, LIVE tournaments, and learning workshops. We can hardly wait!
Early Bird tickets are on sale right now starting at only $15 for a one-day badge.
The Early Bird tickets for a two-day badge are $25 and are perfect for those interested in getting the most out of their trip to San Antonio.
Either ticket includes a badge and branded lanyard, access to all three areas of the convention, and one raffle entry for huge prize giveaways.
Premium Badges are also on sale and are definitely an upgrade. A two-day Premium Badge is $50 and includes all of the above plus a free shirt, poster, and early access to the exhibitor room.
Dressing the part of your favorite Pokémon or anime character is highly encouraged, and you won't be alone if you do.
Every year people come dressed as who they idolized growing up which makes it almost impossible to not feel like a kid again. Get ready to turn your red cap backward when you're gearing up for battle.
More details on what the fest will include should be announced closer to July, so be sure to keep an eye on their website for any updates.
We know we will!
