Comic-con comes to Rochester Riverside Convention Center

A number of celebrity guests will be at the event

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Comic-con style events have exploded in popularity over the past several years, and fans will have an opportunity to check out one right here in Rochester this weekend. 

The event is being held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday, with a launch party held Friday night that was held by the event's organizers. 

As with other comic-con events, there are all kids of vendors, artists, and contests. 

One of the organizers says the event means a lot to him.

"We do this because it's just really a lot of fun," says Christopher Frank, Operations Director. "So, when you see somebody walk in and their face lights up because they're seeing something new or something they've always wanted to see, it's really just a tremendous feeling for me." 

Of course, there are also a number of celebrity guests, such as Bruce Boxleitner, who played Tron in both the original and sequel film. 

Austin Saint John, the original red ranger from the Power Rangers is also attending this weekend.
