If you’re making it out for some fun this weekend, you might want to bundle up. Or you could find something to do indoors. And this weekend’s #News9Events has you covered for both, just in case.

The 2017 Wizard World Comic Con is going down all weekend at the Cox Convention Center in downtown OKC. North America’s largest traveling pop-culture expo is expected to attract thousands of fans from all over, many of whom will be dressed for the occasion.

The event showcases things for fans of science fiction, movies, gaming, comic books and more, with meet-and-greets of some of your favorite celebrities.
