YAKIMA, WA.- You may see some superheros walking around in the next few weeks, but it's not for Halloween. The first ever "Central City Comic Con" is coming to Yakima next weekend.
Local business owners are bringing the big city convention right here to the Yakima Valley and while it may not be as big as comic con in San Diego or New York, sponsors told us they plan to draw attention from Seattle and all over the Pacific Northwest with vendors, celebrities, contests, and games.
"I think it will bring a different flavor, I think we'll have people from the Tri-Cities, Seattle, and the college town of Ellensburg and a lot of younger people here too," local sponsor and business owner Joe Mann told us.
Actors from The Walking Dead and American Horror Story are expected to attend. Organizers told us this year is really about getting the word out, they're already planning for next year which they hope will only get bigger.
The three day event starts on October 23rd and runs through the 25th at the Yakima Convention Center.
