A friend I’ve had since kindergarten loves Hello Kitty. She is all about that Japanese feline. She even celebrated her 30th birthday with a Hello Kitty theme. If you love Hello Kitty as much as she does, you’re going to love what I’m about to tell you.
Are you ready? Are you holding your favorite HK item tightly and wondering with anticipation what the news could possibly be? Probably not if you read the title of this article.
Hello Kitty is hitting the road and going on tour through North America as part of Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival. How cool is that?! According to the Sanrio website, there will be live entertainment featuring DJs and dancing and an interactive game show. Hello Kitty and her friends Dear Daniel, My Melody, Badtz-Maru, Keroppi, Purin, Chococat and Little Twin Stars will be in attendance, along with a mystery guest. And not only do you have the chance to meet these characters, you’ll also get to take part in the many interactive exhibits that are planned for the tour. These exhibits include Hello Kitty’s house, a character forest, a “drive-in” theatre and more.
Cosplay is encouraged at the festival, which means you get to choose your favorite Sanrio character and dress up like him or her. Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival will also have exclusive merchandise (you know you want to pick up some new HK goodies).
Hello Kitty’s Supercute Friendship Festival will run from May 29, 2015 through November 1, 2015, with the possibility of additional dates. Stops on the tour include Minneapolis, Denver, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, Oakland, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Houston, Austin, Detroit and Philadelphia. Tickets for the festival vary in cost.
