It's back!! The Lexington Comic & Toy Convention is this weekend, March 9th-11th. Two years ago I got to attend the LexCon and met some fantastic actors, performers, singers and artists.
If you've never been able to attend an event like this, put it on your bucket list! They are a blast. There are hundreds of booths and tables in a large convention venue, and you're able to walk around at your leisure. From comic book collections, cosplay actors dressed as your favorite movie characters, wrestlers, to comic book illustrators, and famous actors.... there's something for everyone at comic-con's. This year they'll even have the well-known flying car from the movie Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
In my video below I take you on a tour through the 2016 Lexington Comic & Toy Convention-- talking to actors you'll likely recognize from movies like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and TV shows like Star Trek the Next Generation. I even got to speak with one of my childhood hero's... the woman who voiced the character "Jem" from the popular 80's cartoon Jem!
I'll be heading back to this year's LexCon... and the list of guests doesn't disappoint.
Chuck Norris will be there this year!!! Here's a few other big names I'm looking forward to meeting this weekend: Billy Dee Williams, Kevin Sorbo, an “American Pie” reunion of sorts with Shannon Elizabeth and Thomas Ian Nicholas, the girlfriend of “Joe Dirt” Brittany Daniel, Pauly Shore, Lou Diamond Phillips, Jonathan Frakes a.k.a. Commander William T. Riker from “Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Ke Huy Quan of the Goonies and Indiana Jones. I hope to see you there this year!!
