G-Fest XVII will take place at the Rosemont Hotel at O'Hare, just a few blocks from its previous location, according to information recently posted at http://g-fan.com/. Room rates and parking look to be very reasonable, and, in fact, are scaled back slightly from last year, if memory serves.
Equally as exciting is the news that a "double-double feature" has been planned for Thursday, July 8th, at the Pickwick Theater. Two kaiju ficks in the afternoon and two in the evening will make for a rip-roaring prelude to the main festivities, which will feature actor Akira Takarada, whose distinguished career includes both the first and last Godzilla films (and many more in between).
G-Fest will take place July 8--11 (counting the "double-double"), 2010, in Rosemont, Illinois. For more information, click on the above "G-Fan" link. For a first-person account the "G-Fest experience," check out the earliest posts right here at Monsterland Ohio.
