Turlock Comic Con Great Success



Another Pop Culture Event? Some said there already were too many, that it couldn’t work in Turlock.  Attendance tells a different story and those who went will let you know, it worked and it worked well. The line stretched out and around the fairground for hours. An estimated 2500 people came out on what ended up to be a very nice Winters day. Many dressed up as their favorite characters from comics, movies and fantasy books and video games.

Vendors made money, photographers took pictures and the celebrity guests were swamped by fans from start to finish. These are great events for the whole family so make sure you load up the wagon and come on out to the next one. Ziggy and his family already have another one planned for you on September 4th Turlock Collect-a-Thon.
