First, I made sure to check out the OutsideComicCon website a few days before the festivities begin as events and interactives are added all the way up to convention. Not all of the activities operate every day of the convention, and I want to be sure of days and hours of operation. Note: many of the evening events and parties require tickets (paid and non-paid) or RSVPs in advance.
NBC was in their normal spot near the Tin Fish restaurant. Their installation for their new show, Timeless, included a ride (Gravitron) which was fun.

South Park celebrated it's 20th anniversary with a large photo op area and a photo booth with your choice of South Park character. I chose to have a picture with Mr. Hanky.

FX took over the grassy area behind the Hall H lineup again this year. I regret not doing the air bag jump, but I was wearing a skirt two of the days!

M.A.C. Cosmetics had a Star Trek themed installation for their new Star Trek inspired line of cosmetics. The installation was across the street from the Children's Museum which was housing Nerd HQ again this year.

The "Next Day Line" (NDL) for Saturday's Hall H panels was two long lines of tents. The next two photos are only a teeny, tiny portion of the line taken around 11:30am Friday morning. Temperatures were in the high nineties (record-breaking temperatures) the entire weekend, and Friday was the hottest day of the convention.

Saturday morning had passes for the Aliens screening being handed out to passersby, and I grabbed one even though I already had passes to the screening via Gofobo.com. I still love that movie!! They didn't even check to see if we had passes when they started handing out the wristbands to the line.

I didn't have time to get over to the Adult Swim interactive area this year. There is just so much to do and not enough time.
