There will be a cosplay contest, R2-D2 builders demonstration, the and a Super Smash Bros tournament. Nothing else mentioned about panels or events, but I am sure you will be able to find some people to chat with about plenty of different topics.
Admission is only $5 for adults and free for children twelve and under. They do promise there will be air conditioning in the building, which trust me s a big deal.
Another small community convention for a good cause to head out and check on.
