Nickelodeon, Disney Teen Stars to Visit Atlanta This Weekend
Disney’s “Austin & Ally” star Calum Worthy, who plays Dez; “Jessie” star Peyton List, who plays Emma Ross; and Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” star Noah Munch, who plays Gibby Gibson, will visit metro Atlanta Feb. 23 and Feb. 24.
Three teen stars from Nickelodeon and Disney television shows will visit North Point Mall on Saturday, Feb. 23 and Perimeter Mall on Sunday, Feb. 24 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Noah Munck, stars as Gibby Gibson on Nickelodeon’s “iCarly,” Calum Worthy, stars as Dez on Disney’s “Austin & Ally,” and Peyton List, stars as Emma on Disney’s “Jessie.” The trio will headline the event promoting Myrtle Beach as “the ultimate vacation destination."
Munck, Worthy and List will engage with fans by signing autographs and taking pictures.
“Usually we just get to quickly say hello, but this time we are really going to get to talk and get really up close,” List told Patch.
“They can expect to hangout, and I can guarantee you guys all sorts of high fives!” Worthy promised this weekend’s event goers.
“I think that the best part is that everyone will actually have the experience of just hanging out with us,” Worthy said. “They get to tell us what they think of the show or ask us any question they want – it’s like the ultimate fan experience.”
Neither Worthy or List have been to Atlanta before.
“I have never been, but I am so excited because I wanted to go,” List told Patch. The actress said she is particularly looking forward to exploring the restaurants.
Additional on-site entertainment includes face painting, a live DJ and fun and festive giveaways throughout the day. Visit Myrtle Beach will also give away free weekend trips that include lodging, dining and entertainment discounts.
Photos and autographs will be free of charge.
Worthy encourages fans to come up with “crazy” poses for photographs. “If they want to plan a wacky picture with me, I am always down. You can take the nice one for mom and then come up with something a little more fun,” he laughed.
Make sure you arrive at the malls early. There is no official line-up time, but the crowd is expected to be in the thousands.
Myrtle Beach, located on the shore of South Carolina, is around a 5-hour drive from Atlanta. The vacation destination offers 60 miles of beaches and an assortment of family-friendly accommodations.
“Myrtle Beach is the place where Atlanta residents belong this summer,” Brad Dean, President of the Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce, said in a press release. “From our thrilling outdoor attractions to our leisure activities, Myrtle Beach offers an affordable, unique experience where families can build great memories.”
