Fandom Friday: Your Back to the Future Day Celebration Guide

In less than a week, Dr. Emmet Brown and Marty McFly are going to show up in the DeLorean, and boy, aren’t we all stoked. (CERN might just have a surprise for us, you know.)

On October 21, 2015, the duo – together with the iconic time machine – will be celebrated throughout the planet, and you bet we won’t be missing out on that.

To help you figure out what you’re going to do or what events you can go to, here is a Back to the Future Day celebration guide. There’s plenty to choose from.

BTTF2015 Day Celebration Guide

Back to the Future @ P!Q at Rockefeller Center

New Yorkers, head over to the Rockefeller Center to attend P!Q’s celebration. The event is aptly dubbed “Welcome to the Future”, and will:

  • have the actors who played Mayor Goldie Wilson and Principal Strickland in attendance for photos and autographs,
  • show the largest collection of BTTF merchandise in NYC,
  • unveil a FIVE FOOT long DeLorean we had custom made by a movie prop company (which will be auctioned off for Parkinson’s research later).

How cool is that???
