Whether you love comics, science fiction, superheroes, or pop culture in general, a comic convention can be a place for you to find kindred spirits. The annual, family-friendly RocCon features a costume contest, presentations, vendors, and food trucks. A variety of celebrities will be on hand as well, including Chester Rushing ("Stranger Things"), Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake (WWE), Tim Russ ("Star Trek Voyager," "iCarly"), and Power Rangers Steve Cardenas (Red Ranger Rocky DiSantos) and Alison MacInnis (Dana from "Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue"). When they said "variety," they meant it — there's something to suit every genre of fandom. And cosplay is most certainly welcome!
RocCon will take place Saturday and Sunday, September 8 and 9, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Kodak Event Center, 200 West Ridge Road, Rochester. Tickets start at $20 for adults and $12.50 for children (add $5 if you plan to purchase at the door). roccon.net.
