This weekend (11-4 – 11-6) the Rhode Island Comic Con aka RICC will be held at the Amica Mutual Pavilion (formerly the Dunkin Donut Center), RI Convention Center, and Omni Providence Hotel. This year is the 10th anniversary of the show. It has come a long way from being a couple sections at the Convention Center to what it is today.

In the lower concourses fans will be able to shop various vendors, movie cars, Resident Evil display, Joker Crown Vic, Gotham car, and Carshield, Our friends at Featured Presentation will have you going to the Upside Down. There will also be an Sensory Reduced Area for fans that need a quieter spot. The upper concourses will have various vendors for fans to check out.
The main convention floor in the RI Convention Center will be filled with vendors (our friend at Herofied will be there), artist alley, celebrities, and the photo op booth by Epic Photo Ops. There will be a couple Ghosterbusters groups from RI and MA. There will also be a group for G.I. Joe. Each group usually has great displays to highlight to entertain the fans.
On the 5th floor of the convention center fans will be able to go to a Galaxy Far Far Away and see our friends at the New England Garrison of the 501st and The Alderaan Base of the Rebel Legion along other SW themed groups.
