2003 DS Festival news
« on: July 03, 2003, 04:52:23 AM »
From pansyfaye@darkshadowsfestival.com


The Brooklyn Marriott Hotel, location of this year's 20th Annual DS Festival convention, has sold out of sleeping rooms for the Festival weekend, August 29-31, Labor Day weekend.

However, arrangements for Festival overnight sleeping rooms have been made at the neighboring Marriott Financial Center Hotel, 85 West Street, NYC 10006, located just two subway stops away in nearby lower Manhattan.  Festival attendees will receive the same special discounted room rate of only $135 per room + tax (1-4 people per room) at the Marriott Financial Center Hotel.

You must mention Dark Shadows to obtain this reduced room rate.  Call the Marriott Reservation line at 1-800-242-8685 or the Marriott Financial Center Hotel directly at 1-212-385-4900. The special Dark Shadows rate may also be obtained by going to the Marriott website at www.marriott.com, clicking on the New York Finacial Center Marriott, and entering the following special code: DWSDWSA.

Hotel rooms at the Financial Center Marriott are limited, so fans who have not already reserved a room at the Brooklyn Marriott are encouraged to do so at the Financial Center Marriott as soon as possible.

As previously announced, the new play,"Return to Collinwood," will premiere at the Festival.  The original DS actors will recreate their characters onstage in this dramatic sequel to the TV series, which will be performed one time only on Sunday afternoon, August 31.

The Festival is changing its format from a full-scale, three-day convention after this 2003 gathering.  Different events are planned for the future, where guests and fans can still enjoy DS together.  For additional Festival information, go to www.darkshadowsfestival.com

I'm trying to arrange it, Patti. I don't think I want to stay two subway stops away from the host hotel though. I'll have to do some serious investigating.

I might, just maybe, small maybe, be there for a few hours on Saturday.  On that day, I'll be returning to New York from a cruise to Bermuda.  This is a long shot, and I don't know if "walk-ins" are permitted, or if there's room.  I've written Pansy to find out if it's possible and if it is, and we've got the ability to go, I just might attend, even if for just a coupla hours, my first and only DS Festival.  I couldn't think of a better way to end a cruise to Bermuda!

I will definitely be at the Festival this year!  I've got lots of plans for that weekend, and I'm in the process of putting them together now (new fan videos, skit, etc.)  I hope to meet as many of my fellow posters as possible at this event.  :D

Not likely.  The weekend was very bad for me.  We have to bring our daughter back to school.
