BAAF To Continue As Planned

posted on
"We are planning to continue our festivities", says Justin Sevakis. The Big Apple Anime Fest is still scheduled for October 26th through October 28th..

Excerpted from an e-mail from Justin Sevakis:
We at Big Apple Anime Fest are deeply saddened and troubled by the recent attack on our city. The lives of every American have been affected by this tragedy.

We are planning to continue our festivities as planned, with the hope of offering a diversion to our fellow New Yorkers. Since air travel has been so affected by this tragedy, we are aware that this may make it difficult for those planning to attend from out of town.

Things are still changing rapidly, so I'm sure there will be some changes in store.

New Yorkers are tough, and as we are witnessing daily, they are also some of the nicest people in the world. The continued reports of generosity and outreach in our community and elsewhere remind us of what a great place this truly is.

With the help of the rest of the world, we will persevere. And we believe in continuing to live our lives no matter what.

Please stay tuned to the web site for any news and changes to the festival. Hopefully, there shouldn't be too many.
