Great Scot! If you’re a big fan of the Back To The Future trilogy, you’ll want to set your time machines to this weekend! Stars of Back To The Future Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Claudia Wells, and James Tolkan will be making an appearance at Dallas Comic Con’s SciFi Expo at the Irving Convention Center this Saturday and Sunday.
In addition to the stars of Back To The Future, you can also meet celebrities like Andrew McCarthey (Pretty In Pink); Billy Boyd (i), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules); Edward James Olmos, James Callis, and Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Bruce Boxleitner and Cindy Morgan (TRON), and many more! They will be available for pictures, autographs, and Q&A panels throughout the weekend.
There will also be over 300 exhibitors and vendors selling collectibles, movie memorabilia, and original art work. You’ll definitely want to peruse the aisles to check out all the posters, clothing, and merchandise from you favorite movies, TV shows, comic books, and literature.
Dallas Comic Con events are always fabulous for the people watching and costumes. Saturday night is the costume contest with great prizes for the best costumes in a number of categories. New this year is the Cosplay Red Carpet, where everyone in costume can work the red carpet for photo ops by attendees and media photographers alike.
Dallas Comic Con’s SciFi Expo opens at 11AM on Saturday and runs through 5PM Sunday at the Irving Convention Center in Las Colinas. Parking gets a little crowded; why not take the DART Orange Line to beat the traffic? You can find out more information at scifiexpo.com.
