Anime Halloween Costume Ball Dance Announced In Iowa

Davenport, Iowa - September 04, 2010 - QC Anime-zing! is excited to announce an Anime Halloween Costume Ball Dance happening October 30th, 2010 at The RiverCenter in Davenport, Iowa. The event, which will mimick a convention in dance format and pre-dance events, will focus on anime-themed costumes and an assortment of music.

Organizers of the Halloween Ball note that anime fans in some areas might not have much else to do.

"Most of us are at that age where our parents laugh if we want to dress up and go trick-or-treating," said Event Organizer Ryan Kopf. "And anytime there is a Halloween Party for adults, it's not an all-ages thing. We're excited to give people something to do."

Organizers also hope to encourage more conventions to hold events like this.

"There are lots of times that cons can hold mini-events that attendees really appreciate," said Kopf. Kopf also runs a convention listing website at, and has studied convention organizing for the past few years.

The Anime Halloween Costume Ball Dance will take place at The RiverCenter in the grand Mississippi Ballroom. The RiverCenter is among Iowa's largest convention and events centers, with over 13,000 square feet in the Mississippi Ballroom alone, and a combined 100,000 sq ft sitewide when combined with the Adler Theater.

QC Anime-zing! is hosting an Japanese animation and cultural festival (shortened to anime convention) June 17-19, 2011 at the RiverCenter. The event spans three days covering a wide array of topics ranging from unique Japanese fashions to Japanese music to screenings of Japanese animation shows. Also featured will be American voice over actors, who voice translations of Japanese animation material. Other events include video gaming rooms, dances, and a snack-filled hospitality suite.

Tickets for the event are $7, and can only be purchased at the door. More information can be found online, at
