Atomic Lollipop's inaugural year was a blast of awesome programming, amazing costumes, wicked parties and more weird activities than you can shake a flamingo at. If you were there in 2011, you know. If you missed it, you're in for a treat! With even more large-scale fun planned and all your favourite programming from last year returning, Apop's second year is gearing up to be this summer's most interactive weekend of magic and mayhem. Check back regularly for awesome updates and big announcements as we count down to Atomic Lollipop 2012!
