A team of San Diego residents comes together to show their love and passion for Comic-con in public for the second year in a row.
The "San Diego Causeplayer Community Shrine" first came together last year, when it was announced that San Diego Comic-con 2020 would be canceled due to coronavirus, devastating hundreds of comic lovers.
As the Shrine mentions on their website:
A week before Comic-con 2020 we found out nothing was going on in San Diego and quickly put together the Shrine to show love for one of the largest events in the world & to see friends in a very open air socially distant way. The Shrine began to evolve with hundreds of flowers, notes, and chalk drawings.
This year, they announced that they're setting up the Shrine again asking everyone to bring (or mail) a family-friendly photo from Comic-con for their Shrine collage. Their objective is to pay homage to the iconic event, as well as celebrate the return of SDCC in-person Fall 2021. They mention:
"2021 is a less brutal year so far but events aren't quite ready to open so we are setting up the Shrine again asking everyone to bring a family friendly photo from Comic-con for the Shrine collage."
They are also calling SDCC fans to help with the national blood shortage and donate blood at the onsite blood drive they organized, aiming to have at least 600 people donate blood.
The "San Diego Causeplayer Community Shrine" is stationed in front of TinFish restaurant, steps away from San Diego's historic "Gaslamp District". They will be up Friday, July 23 through Sunday, July 26 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
You can find a full schedule of events on their website.
