Minicon takes over library

The Jackson County Public Library in Seymour celebrated the fifth anniversary for its Minicon on Saturday.

Minicon is similar to events like Comi-Con, Gen Con or other fandom conventions, just on a smaller scale and free. The event is a way for people with a common interest to meet, talk and play.

Featuring family-friendly activities, the popular event allowed children and adults to show off and share their interests in science fiction and fantasy, gaming and cosplay.

Kicking off Friday with an adults-only night, participants could take part in a Dungeon Crawl, a scavenger hunt and an escape room, play board games and Dungeons and Dragons, learn about paranormal investigations and stomach a Ramen eating contest.

On Saturday, many of the same activities were available along with other games, including a giant Candy Land and Magic the Gathering, a renaissance dance performed by the Kentucky Shakespeare group, cookie decorating and a costume and cosplay contest.

Guests also could meet and take pictures with the 501st Bloodfin Garrison, a Star Wars cosplay group and the USS Gorkon Star Trek Fan Club.
