2016 South Jersey Geek Fest is this Saturday

Local geeks unite again this Saturday at the South Jersey Geek Fest in Woodbury Heights.

The convention celebrates comics, video and tabletop gaming, cosplay and other nerdy fun with more than 75 vendors, plus YouTube celebrities like Living in 8 Bits and Comic Trips.

CosPlay fans will delight in the Mystic Realm live role-playing experience, while those seeking more competitive thrills can participate in the Super Smash Bros. tournaments or join in on some board game action.  There will also be a Cosplay Kickball Home Run Derby open to all costumed attendees.

For the littlest nerds there will be two “Geekster egg” hunts, one for kids under 5 years and one for children ages 6 to 10.

A wristband pass cost $8 (children under age 10 are free when accompanied by a paying attendee).  CosPlayers and folks who bring non-perishable food items for people or pets get in for just $5.

Saturday, Apr. 2, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. – 741 Helen Ave., Woodbury Heights, NJ.
