Just a reminder about the upcoming and exciting Philadelphia Comic-Con being held this Sunday April 7th.
Usual show hours are 10 AM to 4 PM and admission is a low, low price of $3 per person.  Kids 10 and under free.
Parking is free but sometimes difficult due to the crowds we get and other events held the night before as
some of the guests at parties held on Saturdays are sleeping it off and getting a late start to their day tying up
some spots for us.  Feel free to park in the big rig parking out front if no lined spots are open in the lot.
I can recommend showing up after 1 PM as we get hit with a huge wave in the morning.  The crowd thins out by
then and we are still open till 4 PM which leaves you plenty of time to shop the room.

Held in the Presidential Ballroom of
The Clarion Hotel and Conference Center
76 Industrial Highway (Route 291)
Essington, PA 19029
