Don't Forget: Retro City Festival Coming Up on Jan. 20-21! At the Pomona Fairplex
January 20-21 marks the inaugural Retro City Festival at the Fairplex in Pomona. What is this exciting new event, you ask? This description from their web site pretty well sums it up:
Retro City Festival is an annual celebration dedicated to the history of video gaming. We showcase the largest selection of retro console gaming under one roof in California. Experience Retro City's classic arcades, pinball, tournaments, museums, vendors, and huge console play area!
As SoCal locals know, there's a huge retro gaming community here, one of which SC3 is proud to a be a part of. But while other areas of the state and the rest of the country host big conventions like California Extreme and Classic Game Fest, somehow Southern California hasn't. Well, Retro City is here to remedy that. The organizers are already part of the SoCal retro community; the Festival just lets them take things to the next level. They asked SC3 to have a presence there, which we will in a small way, to show our support and to help share the word. We hope all our regulars are able to come by and say hello, and to check out all the great attractions the Festival has to offer! See you Jan. 20 and 21!
