HUNTINGTON, WV – Tsubasacon, West Virginia's first and premiere Anime, Manga and Gaming convention, will be returning for its seventh consecutive year at the Riverfront Ballroom and Conference Center, at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena in Huntington, WV on October 12 - 14, 2012.
Mayor Kim Wolfe, City of Huntington, will be kicking off opening ceremonies at 3pm on Friday, October 12th to officially deliver the proclamation to the Tsubasacon executive staff and attendees. The mayor will encourage all people, businesses, organizations and institutions to welcome Tsubasacon attendees, volunteers, and staff members to the City and acknowledge them for their continuing participation, economic and charitable contributions.
Tsubasacon has continued to have a positive economic impact of over 100K annually in Huntington and the Tri-State region. Last year's attendance was over 1,100 and the only event of its kind within 3 hours driving distance. We also are engaged with several local partnerships and charities.
Tsubasacon's goals are to promote anime, manga, gaming and Japanese Culture in the Tri-State area (West Virginia, Northeast Kentucky and Southern Ohio) and to establish a social framework though which anime and manga fans can interact with each other.
Many of the convention details, such as registration, guests and events can be found on the convention website at www.tsubasacon.org
