Friendly neighborhood superheroes

Throughout the year we see a vast array of meetings, conventions and events pass through our city. Few are livelier than when the Rhode Island Comic Con sets up shop at the Rhode Island Convention Center in autumn.

On June 7-8, that eclectic energy comes early as Altered Reality Entertainment adds a second event to our city calendar. The same team that produces the Rhode Island Comic Con will host Terror Con, a veritable mash-up of horror, paranormal, psychics, wrestlers, music and entertainment.

Celebrities on hand include WWE® Superstar KaneTM, David Giuntoli and Russell Hornsby from Grimm, and Twisted Sister's Dee Snider. In addition to an array of celebrity guests, there will also be artists, group readings with spirit medium Tiffany Rice, and even a costume contest on Saturday. The schedule is rounded out with various panels (Grimm and SyFy's Face Off), as well as an after-party Saturday night featuring performances by Metal 101, DJ Weezy and Coney Island Sideshow. Who ever said Halloween could only be once a year?

Tickets and VIP passes are available at the Terror Con website.
