1:30 PM – 6:30 PM Cartoonists Expo at The Olympia Center
Two hundred and fifty two feet of tables displaying comics weird and wonderful. All the comics are artisanal and the cartoonists who created them are probably in attendance — a great opportunity to get autographs, sketches, and ask questions. This expo is free to the public… but you just may end up buying a few items.
