Phoenix Fanfest 2017 has come and gone, but, as always, for many, the memories will last a lifetime!
No, the Fanfest isn’t quite as intense or as BIG as the Phoenix Comicon, but then that’s the whole point, isn’t it? That being said the Fanfest this year had it’s own WOW moments to be sure, including a reunion of the cast of the classic flick Willy Wonka, not to mention Ernie Hudson of Ghostbusters fame and the star of Galavant and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. , the lovely Mallory Jansen.

The vendors were out in full force and, no doubt, there was a lot of early Christmas shopping taking place this past weekend.
On a side note, a mere few days after the Fanfest ended the Phoenix Comicon folks have started to announce the guest list for the big show in May, so far that list includes Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy and a return of Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner! So, catch your breath Phoenix freaks and geeks, big things are coming soon enough!
Enjoy our gallery from Phoenix Fanfest 2017, see you all in May!
The Phoenix Zoo’s newest exhibit, Dinosaurs in the Desert has arrived and, no surprise, it’s pretty damn spectacular!
Yes, it’s true, there are lots of places you can see animatronic dinosaurs these days, coast to coast and all over the world, but what sets this exhibit apart from all the others, and really makes it something special and unique, can be summed up in three words; Location, Location, Location!
The animatronic artistry on display, from the world renowned company, Billings Productions/The Dinosaur Company, is quite impressive on it’s own but the added addition of the Phoenix Zoo’s desert landscape truly raises this experience to a whole new level!
The show’s design, which was specifically created for this environment, is a perfect example of the synergy of nature and craft and, if you’re a resident or just passing through, is not to be missed!
Dinosaurs in the Desert runs at the Phoenix Zoo from October 6, 2017 through April 30, 2018, (an additional fee of $5.00 is required for non-members, $4.00 for members) For full details check out the Phoenix Zoo website.
Here’s a sneak peak for you, enjoy!
