Bring the whole family – SciFI/Fantasy Fest at the Hoover Library
Every parent knows the stress and strain of organising things for the kids to do during the school holidays! Even in the 21st
century kids get bored, and finding something that might interest them is never easy. It gets even more difficult when you’re looking for something that interests mom and dad too, but we think we might have the answer.
If you’re one of the many families who are into sci-fi and fantasy, Hoover, Alabama, is the place to be on the weekend of July 27th
. More specifically, the wonderful Hoover Library, which plays host to the Hoover Sci Fi/Fantasy Fest
. It’s a brilliant event where you can immerse yourself and enjoy a wide variety of exciting features, which is now in its fifth year.
The Sci Fi/Fantasy Fest is about enjoying all your favourite fantasy games, TV shows and famous characters, all in one place, and there’s something for everyone here. Especially for kids is the KidCon 2019 element of the event, which promises plenty of fun for the little ones in the family!
Teen Titans Go!
A special treat is in store for your kids with the appearance of the famous characters from Teen Titans Go at KidCon 2019! They can join a dance party with their favourite character, take a trip through Jump City and much more, and it’s all taking place in the children’s department of the Hoover Library on Saturday, July 27th
If you have kids and they want something exciting to do, then you’d be crazy to miss this opportunity to meet the famous young superheroes, and while you’re there, you can also meet some of your own!
Special guests include Birmingham’s own John Anderson, an actor with a list of appearances that is second to none. With parts in Guardians of the Galaxy, Sleepy Hollow, Spider-Man and many more, John is a versatile sci-fi actor who will be taking part in several talks over the weekend that will be of interest to festival attendees.
Also present will be Don Teems, an actor famous for portraying a variety of zombies on The Walking Dead, and whose image has appeared on a vast array of merchandise! Don will be involved in a talk about special effects make-up that is not to be missed.
So Much to See
There is so much to see and enjoy at the Sci Fi/Fantasy Fest that you need to visit the website and draw up a plan.
