Funko, Inc. To Host Annual Mask-O-Raid Event To Benefit Comic-Con Museum

Funko, Inc., a leading pop culture and lifestyle brand, and Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park have teamed up for the third time to celebrate “Mask-O-Raid 2023.”

Hosted by Funko founder Mike Becker, the festive Halloween party will take place on two nights this year, Friday, October 27, and Saturday, October 28, at Comic-Con Museum, with proceeds benefiting Comic-Con Museum and its Education Center.

“There is no better way to celebrate my favorite holiday than by hosting a party at Comic-Con Museum to give back to my local community,” said Becker. “We hope that by offering the event on two nights this year that there will be more opportunity for even more fans to attend and participate in all things Funko.”

“I’ll be hanging out with attendees, displaying some cool Funko mascot heads, Halloween costumes, and masks from my collection, and giving two lively talks about my love for Halloween and how it has inspired Funko in many ways.”

Expanded to two days due to demand

“Last year’s sold-out Mask-O-Raid with Funmaker Mike was a tremendous success. We’re looking forward to bringing this event back and expanding to two nights so that even more fans can participate in the fun,” said Comic-Con Museum Executive Director Rita Vandergaw.

“It all benefits Comic-Con Museum and our Education Center, and it supports our efforts to give fans of all ages a place to celebrate the popular arts year-round. Our huge thanks to Funmaker Mike for his support!”
