Laughing Moon Con will be held at Desert Edge High School on March 22, 2014. It is a fun event that students and families can enjoy along with the local community. All proceeds from the convention go to extracurricular clubs at Desert Edge High School.

Just a $5 Entry fee at the door gets you into the convention for the entire day, and proceeds support the school club that brought the event together. The fun begins at 10:00 A.M.

For the younger generation, this is a rare chance to meet and speak with authors, artists and local talent. Learn about the writing process first hand, or watch a character sketch come to life. It is a chance to be a part of a mini Comic Con event strictly with the younger generation in mind.

The day will also feature dozens of different gaming opportunities ranging from board games, card games, dice games, and role-playing adventure games. It is a fun way to socialize with friends and spend a few hours in good company as you strategize, problem solve, and bring fictional characters to life.

There will be lots of special guests, too! Stop by the vendor tables and meet: Ethan Scott, Darryl Dawson, Jolene Houser, Jenn Czep, Ross Demma, April Grady-Reyna, Dirty Teacup Designs, Knightingail Aurora’s Creations, A D Bravo Illustrations, United Zombies of America, K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider.

And check out Laughing Moon's special guest, Alana Rose, from SyFy Channel’s Face Off series. Alana and Todd VanHooser will be doing a makeup/creature design based on a character they are using on a upcoming graphic novel they are collaborating on.

Laughing Moon Con is hosted by Arizona author and educator Todd VanHooser and the students involved his extra-curricular club. Learn more about the fantasy series here: https://www.facebook.com/laughingmoonchronicles

Several additional Desert Edge High School extra-curricular clubs will be fundraising at the event, and every dollar you spend at their tables will help their club grow.
