EVERETT — With so many people expected to attend, Funko plans to distribute tickets for the tour of its new headquarters and store in downtown Everett.
The toy and collectibles maker will offer tickets to as many people as can be safely accommodated throughout the course of the day.
Ticket distribution will begin at 7 a.m. Aug. 19, at Wetmore Plaza, the public space across California Street from the Funko headquarters.
Tickets are for one person for one trip through the store. The tickets will be for timed sessions throughout the day. A new group will be able to enter the store at the top of every hour between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. The store will be cleared between each session.
The company has relocated its headquarters from south Everett to 2802 Wetmore Ave., the old Bon Marche building that most recently housed the defunct Trinity Lutheran College.
Funko plans to hold a grand opening with festivities that will include food trucks, a beer garden, giveaways and photo opportunities. Funko CEO Brian Mariotti will also be on hand for a signing.
