PeoriaCon is a new convention that made its debut Saturday at the Peoria Expo Gardens. This is a comic book and gaming show that also included a cosmic contest.
The organizers said the event is a way to get people with similar interests together and away from their gaming machines.
“It helps them discover new things. You might already have interests in comic books but you may not have known about some other ones that are here. You might have an interest in some games. Our game people that are here, they’ll be able to show you other ones that are similar to what you already like,” said Jason Johnson, producer of PeoriaCon.
Johnson also added that he hopes this convention can be bigger next year and even become a two day event with more guest speakers.
