Empire City Garrison Eternal Con at Nassau Coliseum - LI, NY 07/01-07/02/2017

Recommended Posts

The 501st Legion's Empire City Garrison attended Eternal Con at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale Long Island on Saturday July 1st and Sunday July 2nd 2017 from 10 am to 4 pm each day.

 

Eternal Con has become Long Island's premier Pop Culture expo featuring over 200 vendors, artists, and various celebrities signing autographs. Every year the convention has gotten bigger and bigger and the ECG has been invited back every year since the very first one. This year they chose a much larger location for the convention due to its popularity and it certainly did not disappoint. This is always a great event for the garrison and this year was no different. The ECG had a fan table set up along with our Death Star backdrop for photo ops. There were about a dozen attendees each day from the garrison. ECG members roamed the con and took photos with attendees. We also promoted the legion and answered questions from potential new recruits who visited our table. The ECG ran a donation drive and raised $100 for the John Theissen Children Foundation.

 

This was also TK-91452 Joe Mantello's first troop, so a big congratulations to Joe!
