One of the perks of having a convention at the Monroeville Convention Center is the large amounts of FREE PARKING, the downside is the parking lots are HUGE and can be a daunting walk for some. Well this year there will be a shuttle servicing the DoubleTree parking lot, the CVS parking lot (next door to the Convention Center) and a lot across the street from the Goodyear tire center at the Monroeville Mall, between poles 18 and 22. So if you were concerned on how to get all your booty that you scored at the Comicon back to your car, you can buy, buy and buy and then take the shuttle. It will be running from 12:00 to 7:00 on Friday; 9:00 to 11:00 and 2:00 to 7:00 on Saturday, and 8:00 to 5:00 on Sunday.
Lastly we do have a couple of cancellations to announce: Rudy Nebres and John Beatty will not be able to make it to this year’s show but we hope to have them back in 2014.
We are super excited about this years show. The buzz has been really positive and we hope to see you all there this Friday thru Sunday.
This is probably the last time I’ll get to talk to you before the show, but to keep up with ongoing Pittsburgh Comicon news as the show is going on, you can check us out on Facebook or follow us on Twitter (@PittComicon)
Thank You so much for your interest in the convention, and I’ll see you all there!!
