Well, not yet exactly. But it’ll be Hello Kitty’s 40th anniversary in 2014! That’s definitely an old for a kitty :p
There isn’t much up on the website yet, but there will be on 11/1, so mark your calendars! What they have announced so far is that SMAP’s song has been chosen as the anniversary song. But if you guys just can’t wait to hear about Hello Kitty until November, thankfully there’s Halloween to talk about!
At Sanrio Puroland, you can watch the Halloween Marching Parade, and even participate. They were kind enough to post a video of the choreography on youtube. Check it out below, and try it out!
They’re also hosting a costume contest in which winners get featured on the website. But I know what you guys really want to see is the kawaii Halloween Hello Kitty food and merch! Don’t worry, I got you!
