The San Francisco Comic Con event will be held at the Oakland Convention Center from June 8 – 10. What will you wear?
What to expect at Comic Con in Oakland with Kids
The convention is family friendly: kids ages 12 and under get in free.
There are plenty of activities including a kid zone, Escape Rooms, and a diversity of panels to attend throughout the day. The events schedule can be found on the Comic Con website >>
My picks for kids include a magic show, a comedy improv session, and balloon animals, plus time to generally mill around, admiring costumes.
High fives to the organizers for creating a panel called RATED E FOR EVERYONE, which is not for kids necessarily, but about inclusion and diversity in the world of superheroes. An LGBTQ meet up for queer fans of the genre is planned as well.
