Kick start your school holidays with an epic weekend adventure celebrating all the good stuff associated with pop culture; sci-fi, cosplay, gaming, cult movie classics and TV shows as well as manga, anime and comic book fun.
Already highlighted in last week's KidTown Melbourne article, Oz Comic-Con is most certainly family friendly, and this year's event boasts a range of activities that will be the talk of the school holidays.
Oz Comic-Con for Kids
Colourful cosplayers will no doubt blow your children's minds as they see their favourite superheroes walking through Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on the weekend of 27 and 28 June.
Oz ComicCon Melbourne will also host an interactive Red Bull Silent Disco, where the entire family can throw some shapes to some tunes playing from their headphones.
This year will see a family activity room introduced to Oz Comic-Con Melbourne, in which children can take part in some arts and crafts, hands-on workshops and games, plus there will be a dedicated Kids Cosplay Competition, where the kids can show off their best costumes.
Oz Comic-Con also offers Q&A sessions and meet-and-greets with some of the big names in fan culture. As well as a range of high profile TV and film celebrities, comic guests will also appear at Oz Comic-Con, including Dean Rankine (The Simpsons), Paul Abstruse and Ryan K Lindsay (My Little Pony) and Brad Walker (Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Guardians of the Galaxy).
