The River City Toy Fest promises to be a great day of family-friendly fun with tons of toys, comics and collectibles to buy, sell and trade. There will be costume contests and cosplay events for all ages, door prizes throughout the day, and more. This will the the inaugural event to kick off an annual ‘con’ right here in Vicksburg that will grow bigger and better every year.
“We’ve got a lot of folks here that love, basically, nerd stuff,” Local radio personality Chris Burks said. “I feel like this will really help connect people.”
