The Greater Austin Comic Con organizers made several appearances around town in an effort to bring a little laughter and fun to Cedar Park. We’ve all felt the effects of the novel coronavirus. From business closures and virtual schedules, to new health and safety requirements; it’s been an adjustment to say the least. That is why they wanted to give back to community and provide their support to the local businesses. Check out some highlights from their adventure below.
springhill suites by marriott
Spiderman and Darth Vader checked into SpringHill Suites by Marriott for award-winning hotel accommodations with outdoor, fresh air amenities, walkable restaurants, entertainment, art, and more. The high-speed wifi, large guest suites, and helpful staff allowed these comic characters to remain productive while safely social distancing.
When superheroes need training, they go to Austin Ninjas, a premier American Ninja Warrior obstacle course right here in Cedar Park! These ninjas worked on their skills with two-time American Ninja Warrior, Nick Fordney. Check out their website for upcoming classes, trainings, open gym schedule, and safety policies so you can experience what it’s like to be a superhero too.
