Hello Kitty herself, yay!
We arrived at the Oracle Arena (home of the Warriors, yee!) a little early & got in line to enter into the festival. Once inside, we were welcomed by a huge Hello Kitty popcorn with a small theater of Sanrio videos. There was also some specialized outfits made for certain characters along with a backdrop to take photos with.

Happy as can be!
Once you cross through into the real portion of the festival, you are bombarded with cuteness everywhere! Photo backdrops galore, Sanrio merchandise, mini shows with the characters, temporary tattoos, face painting, photobooth, how to draw stations & more! If you love Hello Kitty/Sanrio, you would love this ;)
We fit in a Hello Kitty slipper!

The Little Twin Stars backdrop was my favorite photo op of the day! Not only are they my zodiac sign, they were my first memory of Sanrio :)
Kisses for the hubs!

Cute little storefront
You could write cute postcards to Hello Kitty as well! I wanted a few to send to my friends as well, but at least Miss Kitty got one ;)

At around 12:30PM, we rushed back to the very first backdrop cuz Hello Kitty herself was going to make an appearance for photo ops at 12:50PM. She didn't disappoint :P
Hugs for Kitty-chan!

Overall, I totally recommend this festival for anyone that loves Hello Kitty or Sanrio in general. Plus, it's quite interactive for people of all ages! You can look up event information here.
