This Friday and Saturday the GEEMD has partnered with Cynthia Vela to produce the first annual free comic-con, East End Comic Fan Festival. It’s free to the public, family and pet-friendly and free. Yes, I said free.
Volunteers are set up for the first Comic Fan Festival that included live art shows, local food trucks and, of course, a big cosplay contest.
Roy Rodriguez, manager of the East End Farmers Market, is hopeful the Fan Festival will be an annual event.
“I would describe it as an area that had been forgotten for a time and one that has so much history that should never be forgotten,” Rodriguez said.
