Wizard World Chicago Comic Con

This weekend I’m super excited to be reporting back from WIZARD WORLD CHICAGO COMIC CON KIDS DAY!!


I can’t wait.. I swear I’ve become a super hero 🙂  If you are in the Chicago area check out what is instore for this weekend’s kids day:

Sunday, August 12, ‘Kids Day’ At Wizard World Chicago Comic Con

Admission to Kids Day and the entire Wizard World Chicago Comic Con for kids 10 and under is free with a paid adult (two free kids per adult).

Some of the highlights of Kids Day include:

· Wizard World Chicago Comic Con Passport (all day) – upon arrival, kids should go directly to

the Kids Day booth to pick up a Passport, which will guide them to kid-friendly booths, activities,

celebrities and artists. Kids who earn stamps at each stop will win a prize.

{Who ya gonna call….}

· Ghostbusters Reading (11 a.m.) – Who ya gonna call? Bring the little ones to a special story

time reading by the Ghostbusters. Kids can interact with the Ghostbusters as they ask trivia and

answer any questions the young ones have always wanted to ask.

· Superhero Arts and Crafts (noon) – This is not an ordinary arts & crafts session, this is

specifically made for superheroes! Kids can come join the Justice Twins, Wonder Woman and

Supergirl to make their very own superhero mask to wear for the Kids Costume contest.

{Did you say arts and crafts.. I will be there!!}

· Kids Costume Contest (1 p.m.) – Too cute to resist! It’s like Halloween in August as kids show off

their best costumes and win prizes. Hosted by our very own superhero, Jarrett “The Defuser”


· Face painting and balloon artists (all day) – Talented Wizard World face painters have kids as

their canvas, with butterflies, kitty whiskers, flowers and more.

· Kid-friendly celebrities (all day) – Well, we like to think every Wizard World celebrity loves kids,

but a few will be stamping Passports and saying an extra hello. Check out the list on arrival.

· Kid-friendly artists (all day) – Visit super-talented artists in Artists Alley for a Passport stamp and

maybe a commissioned piece! Look for the “Kid-Friendly” sign at their respective tables.

Top celebrities such as William Shatner, Stan Lee, Scott Bakula, Tom Felton, Jon Bernthal, Mike

“The Situation” Sorrentino and WWE® Superstars CM Punk™ and John Cena®, notable artists

Carlos Pacheco, George Pérez, Greg Capullo and dozens of others will attend what is shaping up as

the biggest Wizard World show ever and the Midwest’s No. 1 Pop Culture Convention.
