It's Comic Con weekend! Oct 14-16

Friday, October 14, 2016 3:39 PM by Carol Stoddard

A long time ago in an empty field between Dallas and Fort Worth, the Irving Convention Center rose up and opened its doors to the people of the Metroplex!  It is during a period of boredom.  The City of Irving wrestles with a yearning to see and to do that which is above the ordinary, that which is unusual and exciting.  It yearns to cosplay. 

After defeating the evil empire of boredom and the mundane, the people of Irving rejoiced in a celebration of all things Comic Con.  Join them in this celebration for a weekend of Fan Days at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas.  Beam up and be amazed!
