“Hero of Hyrule, chosen by the sword that seals the darkness. You have shown unflinching bravery and skill in the face of darkness and adversity, and have proven yourself worthy of the blessings of the Goddess Hylia. Whether skyward bound, adrift in time, or steeped in the glowing embers of twilight, the sacred blade is forever bound to the soul of the Hero.” A hero slumbers, and the blood moon rises, waxing and waning through the long Hyrulian nights. A princess must awaken her champion, and we shall pray to Hylia these nights do not grow longer. It is our hope that there is bright color left in the streams and the mountains, and that even as fear takes root, the desert winds hold us aloft to kiss the leaves upon the trees. We must be as one Hyrule, and give heart to our champion, sword against the calamity. The METRO Fire Show is coming back again for 2019! Inspired by last year’s hit game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, come see a tale of hopes and dreams brought to life! Princess Zelda seeks to wake her champion, Link, after his hundred-year sleep – she knows that Ganon is still a threat, and that Hyrule’s days are numbered if Link doesn’t wake up – but how will she explain what has happened? Will he awake in time to confront the calamity, and save Hyrule alongside her? See performers weave together a story of fire and love, of heart and of pride, unlike any Legend of Zelda tale you have ever experienced this year at METROCON 2019!
The Riverwalk area will be utilized this year for the METRO Fire Show each night, and sometimes hosts cosplay meetups and large photo groups.
