ComicFest Kicks off Summer Reading Programs

Whatever your fandom, geek out with fellow nerds at Nashua Library ComicFest on Saturday, June 22, from 12 noon to 7 p.m.

ComicFest launches the library’s kid, teen, and adult summer reading programs, which let you log how long you read and earn prizes and raffle tickets. The summer reading theme is “A Universe of Stories,” so look for plenty of space-related activities at the event.

What can you do at ComicFest?

ComicFest is loaded with events for all ages. If cosplay is your thing, dress uComicFestp and compete for prizes in the Cosplay Dating Game or the Cosplay Contest.

If you’re into gaming, battle your friends in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament, chill out with board games, or test your fandom knowledge at a trivia challenge.

At ComicFest you can escape the real world: Let magician Mark Pinksten dazzle you with his fandom shows. Solve your way out of an outer-space-themed escape room. Lose yourself in the creations of 30 Artists Alley vendors.

At the end of the day, do the time warp, when we screen everyone’s favorite musical/horror/comedy film (Rated R). Props will be provided.

All day, get your picture taken in a photo booth or with creative backgrounds in front of a green screen.

Kidstuff

In the Children’s Room, kids can make edible constellations, decorate their own spaceships, and play Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Comet. They may even run into some of their favorite sci-fi characters.
