On September 15, we attended the Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Target Field. There was a really big turnout, which was wonderful. We posed for a lot of photos and had a wonderful time!
Minnesota Superheroes United were asked to appear at the IMAX Theater at the Minnesota Zoo for the Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary Film Festival. I think due to a lot of factors (Labor Day weekend, Renaissance Festival, Minnesota State Fair, Dragon*Con), we just didn’t have volunteers available, so it was just me and Paul standing awkwardly in the IMAX lobby dressed as Scarlet Witch and Winter Soldier. So…we didn’t get any photos of us actually at the event. Whoops.
We did arrive early, though, to watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier (because IMAX + 3D = UHHHHMAZING) and that was super fun. After the event, we both took photos of our respective costumes to submit to the MNSU to get “formal” approval – and we both got approved! So, nothing can stop Bucky and Wanda from getting into shenanigans, now.
On August 11, we participated in the World’s Largest Toy Battle, organized by Project My Neighborhood. We battled each other with old school Nerf Blast-A-Ball blasters from 1989 (it was hilarious because it’s impossible to aim these things). The weather was a little warm, but we still had a lot of fun and the kids seemed to have a great time having Nerf blaster battles against each other.
On July 26, I went to Children’s Hospital to appear on Kid’s Clubhouse and, as usual, had a blast! I love doing these events. Below is the video of our appearance:
