The Halloween ComicFest returns with a bigger lineup of fun than ever before. Enjoy a full day of treats, cosplay, prizes, special guests, exhibitors and more family fun.

On top of that, there will be a celebrity guest in the form of Hannah Levien, star of the Freeform series Siren. And there will be lots of photo opportunities with superheroes like Batman and cosplayers like the popular Estrada Sisters and Aero Cosplay along with displays from the Ottawa Chapter of the Doctor Who Society of Canada and many others.

Admission is only $2 and children 12 and under are free with a paying adult.

The event runs from 10 am to 5 pm in Salons A,B and C of the Cornwall Civic Complex.
