The event will include dozens of vendors, toys, and comics of course.
Frannie Taysavang, who is planning on going with her family, says they are counting down the days until the big event.
“A lot of people don't understand obsessions with fandoms but when you're at a convention or get together like that everybody understands,” said Frannie.
