Gotham City — I mean Walla Walla — is gearing up to honor the late Adam West, Walla Walla’s native son and legendary Batman actor on Sept. 19.
Adam West Day will include a showing of the documentary “Starring Adam West,” a question-and-answer panel, music, food, contests, the official lighting of the Bat-Signal, activities for kids and much more.
He will talk about his work on Batman in DC Comics, animated classics and how he was the personal sculptor of Adam himself. Clips of Adam’s work will be shown and there will be door prizes. Free photos with the Batmobile, courtesy of The Marcus Whitman Hotel.
Businesses with a Batman sticker in the window will offer promotions in honor of Adam during the day.
An After Party will be at Sapolil Cellars, 15 E. Main St. where you can do the “Batusi” while rocking out to Wide Stance (formerly the Hitmen). Door prizes.
Funds raised will go to Camp Rainbow Gold.
