If you thought Pokémon and Hello Kitty were the most exciting characters to come out of Japan, think again. A world of creativity and imagination has been unleashed, and it's making its way to South Florida with Comics, Gaming, and Anime at Flamingo Gardens.
The two-day event, presented by CGA Shows, will feature comic books, tabletop and videogames, anime (animated productions), Manga (comics), Japanese snacks, taiko Japanese drumming, and vendors and artists. And don't miss the costume play and contest. The winner will be invited to the Chibi Pa Invitational Costume Contest for a chance to win $500 in cash.
Join the animated adventures on Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Flamingo Gardens, located at 3750 S. Flamingo Road in Davie. Admission is $9 for ages 12 and older and $5 for children 4 to 11 and includes entrance to the garden's 60 acres of tropical paradise. Members and children under 3 are admitted free.
