Menlo Park's 4th Annual Comic Con celebrates quidditch, 'Star Wars' and more

 

Watch two local U.S. quidditch teams compete, experience live music, film screenings, crafts and panel discussions, and celebrate all things comics and sci-fi for free at the Menlo Park Library's 4th annual Comic Con.

The event is scheduled at the Menlo Park Library, 800 Alma St., from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 22. Admission is free and attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite comic, sci-fi, video game or fantasy characters.

Other scheduled activities include science experiments with Peanuts characters like Snoopy, courtesy of the Charles M. Schulz Museum and musical performances of songs by Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien, performed by Margaret and Kristoph; as well as the band "Cartoon Violence," a duo in costume that describe themselves as "musical crime fighters (performing) West Coast Nerd Rock." The Golden Gate Garrison of the 501st Legion and The Dark Empire, two groups that create and wear Star Wars costumes, will be present.
