By the 28th Amendment, it is your right to Purge.
(In the world of The Purge, of course.)
That very world was brought to life for a fleeting moment in time during San Diego Comic Con 2018. To celebrate the recent release of The First Purge, and an upcoming 10-episode series based on The Purge franchise, fans could enter and shop at Purge City to prepare for Purge night, where all crimes including murder, are legal for 12 hours.
As you entered, you were given 20 purge dollars in which you could purchase anything from The Purge T-Shirts, bumper stickers, magnets, pins-even Purge-Away cleaning pen-for those drops of blood you may have missed the morning after purge night.
One of the lovely staff members gave a demonstration and shared her family’s delightful purge night tradition, which included baking a cake with a tiny toy inside, and whoever gets the toy in their slice of cake gets to be tied to a pole outside all night! You can check out the special presentation below!
Check out footage from inside the place where all you Purge dreams can come true!
The Purge TV series is set to make its debut September 4th on USA Network!
