Omni-Con, a science fiction and fantasy fan convention, will be held at Tech this weekend.
Hosted by Alpha Psi Phi, Tech’s science fiction and fantasy club, Omni-Con will take place in the RUC on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. If the weather permits, the Heroic Interactive Theatre plans to give demonstrations of live action role playing at Sherlock Park.
Fondly referred to as “a convention for all things geek” by Omni-Con chairpeople, the event is expected to attract 300 to 500 sci-fi enthusiasts.
Guest panels that explore the genres of science fiction, fantasy, anime, comics and gaming are headlining the event. In addition, professional and amateur artists will be featured in the Omi-Con art show and have the option to compete in an art contest. There will also be video game tournaments, film screenings and a costume contest.
Admission at the door is $6 for one day and $10 for two days. For more information about Omni-Con, visit www.omnicon.us.
