ToshoCon is back!
It’s that time of year again! Once again, the Newport News Public Library System will host the Toshocon Anime/Comic Convention. The event will take place on April 22nd at Main Street Library from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is open to teens, ages 12 to 17, and admission is free.
It promises to be a jam-packed day, full of activities! There will be anime screenings, gaming tournaments, workshops, craft tables, dancing, and, the ever-popular, cosplay competition. Teens can dress up as their favorite anime/comic/original character and compete onstage for prizes. Other contests include a roaming Janken (rock-paper-scissors) competition and hourly door prizes. The will also be vendors onsite for those with an eye towards purchasing anime/comic merchandise or food.
It won’t be your average, somewhat quiet day in the Library — Toshocon fans are counting on that!
ToshoCon is sponsored by the Library System’s Herbert H. Neisser Fund with additional funding from the Friends of the Newport News Public Library.
