The annual Neighborhood Comics Fest held on November 2 was a smashing success! A joint collaboration between Mount Pleasant and Olneyville libraries, this free, family-friendly event was created as a free alternative to the RI ComiCon taking place downtown. Almost 100 children, teens and adults attended.
Among other activities, attendees enjoyed creating their own superhero-themed t-shirts, using the space-themed photo booth, creating their own video games, and participating in an intergalactic dance battle with the ever-popular Big Nazo crew. Other collaborators who presented workshops included the Wilbury Theater and Kevin Hubbard from RISD. And free comic books were provided by Pleasant View Comics. This event will be even larger in 2020!
