Emerald City Comic Con 2019: Fun for the whole family
This is huge.
Emerald City Comic Con runs Thursday through Sunday (March 14-17) at the Washington State Convention Center.
It's almost impossible to sum up the experience or all of its offerings.
Here's how the organizers describe the event: "The destination comic and pop culture show for the Pacific Northwest. ECCC delivers the best that the comics and pop culture industry has to offer directly from the creators, bringing super fans exactly what they crave: interaction with quality content and guests and an inclusive space to celebrate their fandom."
Part of the fun for everyone in Seattle — attending or not — in seeing the number of dressed-up fans around town.
At the convention center, you'll find merchandise, cosplay, gaming, celebrities and so much more. There will be panel discussions, authors and actors, book recommendations. There will be plenty of food vendors, and the event even has an official beer. There are meetups for fans of numerous shows and a whole area set aside for kids and families.
If you've money to spend, a popular activity is photo ops (and autographs) with a long list of stars including Rupert Grint of "Harry Potter" fame, plus cast members from "Boy Meets World," "Star Trek" and "Stranger Things."
Go have fun, dress up, geek out, do all of the things!
