Boston Comic Con Canceled Due to City Wide Lock Down
An update to current events. At 10:00am Eastern Standard Time, Boston Comic Con announced that their event this weekend is canceled. The city is on total lock down, no one in or out, while authorities search Boston for their suspects for Monday’s bombing of the Boston Marathon.
Here’s the statement posted by the convention:
Due to the unfortunate events that have transpired here in Boston, a city wide lock down has been put into effect until further notice causing The Hynes Convention Center to suspend all events until further notice. As such, The Boston Comic Con has been posponed and will be rescheduled to a date sometime in 2013.
All people who purchased advanced tickets on line will have their tickets honored at the rescheduled show. We will notify you of that date. If for some reason, you can not come to the show on that date, we will refund your ticket.
Please, we ask for your patience, understanding, and cooperation. We appreciate your loyalty, and continued support for The Boston Comic Con. Unfortunately, this situation is beyond our control.
We stand with all Bostonians and hope that current events are resolved quickly and a degree of normalcy can be returned to our city.
No word yet on if the organizers will try to hold the event latter in the year. There are so many scheduling issues, between Guests and not going up against other events, that it may not be possible.
