ALBANY, GA (WALB) - 'Winter's coming' a bit early this year, Epicon will be back in the Good Life City this Saturday.
The first two years were such big successes the organizers are bringing back the convention for year three.
This year, Epicon will be held at the Civic Center on August 19 and opening ceremonies will begin at 10:15 a.m.
Last year over 1,000 people attended the event.
Epicon is a convention that offers something for a plethora of fandoms from comic books, novels, cosplay, art, film and so much more.
No con would be complete without special guests and Epicon is no exception.
"We have the first generation second Red Ranger that Steven Cardinas. He played Rocky, the Red Ranger in the first Power Rangers movie. That's a hit from our childhood for a lot of us," said Epicon Founder Timothy Wane Haire Jr.
As fans prepare to attend Epicon, organizers are busy preparing the convention.
The event intends to live up to its claim of being, 'A meeting place for all geeks/nerds/otakus from the southwest region of GA, but also the surrounding tri-state area of Georgia, Florida, and Alabama.'
