The Kraken Invades the Old Iowa Capitol!

Friday, October 28, I will be on the steps of the Old Capitol on the pentacrest.  I’ll be there from 5:00pm-10:oopm.   (Creepy Campus Crawl is 6:30-8:30pm)

This event is family friendly, FREE, and open to the public.

I’m going to a party!  At a museum!  Here’s the press release from the UI Pentacrest Museums:

Stop by and wave hello!

And I already mentioned this, but KGAN CBS-2 news from Cedar Rapids is scheduled to do a live news cast with me in the background on Thursday morning! (between 5-7am)

They’ll be showing off a little bit about where I come from, how I work, and what I mean.

My builders will be on the news a bit too. I suppose I can surrender the spot-light to them for a few moments… After all, they did spend weeks and weeks stitching me together. 🙂

KGAN will be broadcasting live from my new spot. I’ll appear Thursday morning on a new location somewhere in downtown Iowa City…see if you can identify where!

Hope you can catch it!
