Comic cons are big business these days. These once fringe subculture events, have entered the mainstream and have become the premiere venues to celebrate pop culture. The growing popularity of comic cons can be partly attributed to the recent elevation of all things geeky in pop culture. But also by expanding comic cons to include not only comics, but also science fiction, fantasy, games, television, movies, animation, and all sorts of fandoms, comic cons have become celebrations of all things pop culture.
Polish up your Wolverine claws, put on that cardboard TARDIS you made for Halloween, or show off that movie-quality Star Wars storm trooper outfit you spent a million dollars on. Whatever your fandom is we want to see it. Or, if you're not into cosplay, just come as you are. There will be lots of stuff going on.
All day events:
Several events will be going on all day at Mini Comic Con from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
