Attn: Hello Kitty Fans! #HKFestival is here!

Hello Kitty is hitting the road this year with her first-ever live North American tour: Hello Kitty's Supercute Friendship Festival!

Fellow blogger and friend Penny from OnTheGoOC attended the #HKFestival preview and shared her favorite must-see's and do's.

Hello Kitty heaven! That's where we were last night covering the amazing Friendship Festival at the Forum. There were so many hard core HK fans that showed up, even the line to check in was fun to be in, seeing everyone in their cosplay!

Once inside we just couldn't get enough! Aside from checking out all of the HK apparel, souvenirs and very charismatic and upbeat stage shows, we had a few favorite and must do activities that we definitely suggest checking out. 

When I asked my 7 year old daughter what her favorite part was, she said it was definitely meeting Hello Kitty! She also loved walking through Hello Kitty's life size house and seeing all of her life size things. 

I couldn't have wanted more out of the experience than the words that came out of my daughters mouth, "Just perfect and so cute it's hard not to smile and be friendly to everyone."

I think Hello Kitty would be super pleased with that response.

There are a lot of activities for all ages at Hello Kitty's Supercute Friendship Festival. I mean, you kinda turn into a kid when you're there and just put on the ears and bow, paint your whiskers on and get a temporary tattoo. You can't help but smile along with all the cuteness. Also if you follow along with the #HKFestival hashtag on Instagram, you will see some more awesomeness going on at the Forum this weekend, get your tickets


 (P.s. They're heading to San Diego next!)

My personal favorites we're definitely the dresses they had on display as well as the art wall where you were able to practice drawing Hello Kitty and her friends on a whiteboard. 

I must confess, meeting Hello Kitty myself was a childhood dream come true, since I used to walk to the Sanrio store in Tustin, California a few blocks from my house when I was my daughter's age. Talk about a nostalgic night and a memory that my daughter and I will have forever.
