ThunderCon is a fan-run event focused on all things geek! Oct 22/23, Valhalla Inn, Thunder Bay Come and “get your GEEK on” with all the rest of Thunder Bay’s geeks, nerds and fans of all stripes. There will be plenty of things to do including vendors in Diagon Alley, board and card game demos, a cosplay contest, a model kit contest, video game demos and tourneys and scavenger hunts. Both the 501st Storm Troopers and Mandalorian Mercs will be hosting activities in the Star Wars Zone. Go on a LARP adventure, watch staged performances and participate in panel discussions. There are even activities for the kids.
This year is the 50th anniversary of the seminal TV series, Star Trek, as well as the 20th anniversary of Pokemon. How wonderful that we can celebrate these pop culture phenomena with games, adventures, cosplaying and merchandise! Once again, the Valhalla Inn Thunder Bay will be transformed into something 'Out of this World' and we invite you to join us Oct 22/23 for two days of geekdom at its best!
