Super heroes take on bullies at Florida FandoMania event set for June 17-19 in Fort Pierce
Super heroes, immortals and sci-fi characters will join forces June 17-19 to fight bullying at Florida FandoMania, the Treasure Coast’s largest and most comprehensive comic, gaming and anime convention ever.
Florida FandoMania celebrates the fans, shows, movies, music, anime and games that capture the attention of the world, and will raise funds and awareness to combat bullying – particularly among young people.
Dozens of events, seminars, meet-and greets and panel discussions, as well as music and entertainment will fill the three-day FandonMania celebration with something for everyone at the Havert Fenn Center, 2000 Virginia Avenue in Fort Pierce.
Anyone who has ever played a video game or watched a movie and wanted to know more about the story, the characters in it and the people who created them, is not merely a fan, but part of a fandom!
This is a great opportunity to dig into the details of a favorite show, movie, anime or video game. Florida Fandomania is all about providing opportunities to connect with other fans, explore new genres and interact with the stories, music and celebrities that attract fans from every walk of life.
Florida FandoMania opens at 4 p.m. Friday, June 17 with a scavenger hunt and continues until 10 p.m. Saturday’s hours are 10 a.m to 11 p.m. Sunday’s hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. More details and a complete schedule are available at www.floridafandomania.com.
