SATURDAY August 30, 2014

Dragon Con Comics & Pop Art proudly announces the return of the Aspen Comics Beach Party to Dragon Con Night at the Georgia Aquarium. Featuring appearances by Aspen’s top creators, this memorable night of music, dancing, exclusive art releases, and a special costume contest is capped off by a live dive event in the magnificent whale shark tank, in which two very lucky fans will swim alongside these magnificent creatures with the Aspen crew. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 30, 2014, grab your favorite beachwear or ocean-inspired costume, and take the plunge into a thrilling, fun-filled evening you won’t soon forget!

A DJ will again be spinning a premium blend of beach-party-perfect tunes for your listening and dancing pleasure, as Dragon Con attendees enjoy exclusive admission to one of the world’s largest and most spectacular aquariums. And new for 2014, the VIP experience is $75 and includes admission to aquarium, private lounge area with scenic intimate views of animal gallery, open bar, and light bites, and an exclusive meet-and-greet with Aspen Comics creators.

To cap things off, Aspen Comics and the Georgia Aquarium are offering an exciting array of prizes to commemorate this occasion, including original art, sculptures, signed books, and a behind-the-scenes Aquarium tour.
