WALKER STALKER CON CHARLOTTE NC 2017 INFORMATION AND THINGS TO DO

WALKER STALKER CON CHARLOTTE

                Do you watch the Walking Dead? Read the comics? Maybe you just like zombies (or walkers) or you’re just a fan of horror in general. If so then the Walker Stalker Con is the convention for you to go to this weekend. I’ve been to this convention when it gets held in Atlanta, GA, (except for this year because with it being held where I live I figured why drive 4 hours when I can wait and drive 5 minutes), and each time I went I had a lot of fun.

So, just how much will it cost to have all this fun? Glad you asked, cause here’s the ticket information you will need to know.

TICKETS

Online tickets are sold through ShowClix. A purchase confirmation will be emailed to you, please bring it to the event.


Photo Ops

There is a lot of information to be given on the photo ops and since I don’t want to miss something that might be a very vital and important piece of knowledge you might need to have, I’m just post a link to the main site so you can look and learn about the photo ops as well as buy your tickets for them.

A Photo Op is a 8×10 professional photo of you with a celebrity guest or guests!
