"May the 4th be with you" - Sci-fi, fantasy, comic book festival planned
Rami-con festival celebrates all things Sci-Fi, Cosmic, Comic and Fantasy on May 4th
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – RAM is celebrating all things Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Cosplay/Comics/Anime and Gaming for the first ever RAMi-Con.
"This is the first ever for the city of Jacksonville. And it's an opportunity for all those sci-fi geeks to come out and they will see they are not alone" said Krysten Bennett who is the director for the Riverside Arts Market.
Participants are invited to come in costume of their favorite sci-fi character. Another option is to watch the costume contest finals at 2 pm on the River Stage.
"The Skyway will be running free all day long, we suspect it's a close relative of R2-D2" said Bennett.
The event takes play on Saturday May 4th, which also falls on Sci-Fi Weekend at MOSH which is just a short Water Taxi ride away!
"Special booth spaces are available for collectibles vendors, comic book stores and other businesses and organizations of interest to sci-fi enthusiasts.
This is a family friendly event and just another reason to come out and support the Riverside Arts Market on Community First Saturday" said Bennett.
