Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre
Atomic Lollipop is a combined convention, carnival, music festival, and MASSIVE party entering its third year! There's the usual convention attractions (vendors' room, artists' alley, fandom panels and workshops, etc), but their main priority is magic, mayhem, and getting messy. So they've thrown in a ferris wheel, bouncy castles, aerial acrobats, nerdy burlesque, fire spinners and massive interactive events like a pillow fight and lightsaber battle to the mix!
For more information, check out the Atomic Lollipop website.
