Thousands of people came dressed and ready for the annual Comic-Con at Macomb County College
Thousands of people came dressed and ready for the annual Comic-Con at Macomb County College. The weekend event brought in people from all over the United States. Booths were set-up with vendors who were given the opportunity to sell merchandise. Kids were encouraged to enter in the costume contest which took place in the early afternoon. Adults could also enter into their own contest and the winners received various prizes like signed memorabilia and comic book posters. People spent hours designing and creating their costumes. Along with the creative costume designs, elaborate makeup was certainly showcased on the event attendees. The CW50 Street Team had a great time talking to many of the comic-con participants. We can't wait to be back next year!
