Happenings: Central Canada Comic Con this weekend October 28-30, 2011

The 2011 Central Canada Comic Con (C4) is a three-day pop culture event held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Featuring celebrity guests, comic book artists, exhibitors, costume contests, video rooms, gaming, and more.

Last year the show was picked up and then in the summer of 2011 inexplicably dropped by Wizard Entertainment. The original organizers pulled up their socks and have managed to recover and have assembled another larger pop culture festival for the enjoyment of the many fans in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
