Pre-Labor Day Atari Event Slated Returns to Bridgeport
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (May 25) - The largest East Coast gathering of Atari computer and video game system users will return to Bridgeport, Connecticut, on Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28. Connecticut AtariFest '94 promises a state-of-art exhibition of products and services for Atari desktop and palmtop computers, video and portable game systems, software, peripherals and accessories for the fourth consecutive year.
The event, to be staged at the Bridgeport Holiday Inn in downtown
Bridgeport, is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday (Aug. 27) and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday (Aug. 28). The sponsor is ACT Atari Group, a network of computer clubs from Bridgeport, Danbury, Hartford, New Haven and Wethersfield areas, Central Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. Since its debut in Bridgeport in 1991, the show has attracted thousands of Atari system owners and onlookers from around the U.S. and Canada. In 1992 and 1993 the show was held in the Greater Hartford area.
This year, organizers expect consumer attention to focus on the Jaguar,
Atari's 64-bit game system that many industry observers believe surpasses the technology of Nintendo and Sega, among the most widely-sold systems in the U.S. CAF '94 features New England's biggest electronic games competition, as well as bargains on hardware and software and professional seminars and demonstrations of computer graphics, desktop publishing, telecommunications, electronic music, home and business applications, and more.
Admission is $6 for adults, half price for children under 12. Two-day
passes are $10. An all-you-can-eat, buffet dinner on Saturday is available for an additional charge. The Holiday Inn is located within two blocks of Interstate 95 (Exit 27), Route 8 (Exit 2), and Amtrak rail passenger and Long Island ferry terminals.
