FOLEY - Foley Public Library will host its second annual Forward City Con (a comic/anime/gaming convention) on Sat, April 14, 10 am – 6 pm at the Foley Civic Center. The day will include panel discussions, video gaming, tabletop gaming, Human Bingo, the Wheel of Con, and a Cosplay competition.

Local vendors such as Action Game & Movies, Gamer’s Domain, Covert Comics, and the Wormhole will be on hand. Local artists will also be included.

As a special treat, members of Delta Squad of the 501st Legion, Alabama Garrison, will attend in Star Wars costumes to raise money for cancer research. Representatives from Stack-up, a military gaming charity, are also scheduled to attend.

Animes will be shown at the Foley Public Library’s upstairs meeting room from 1-6 pm. The Foley Public Library is located next door to the Foley Civic Center.

The Cosplay competition is open to 50 contestants and offers two categories – “self-made” and “purchased.” Medals and prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each category.
