HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – The 66th Force Support Squadron will host HansCOMICON Comic and Game Expo March 10 from noon to 8 p.m. at the Minuteman Commons here.

The event, first held last year, will include more than 30 activities, such as video game tournaments, art classes, technology panels, a vendor hall and much more.

“It’s nice to see the event come so far in just its second iteration,” said Andrew Lane, event organizer. “We wanted to plan something again this year and are hopeful that our Hanscom families will enjoy it.”

The event is free for all ages and open to all those with base access.

“HansCOMICON 2022 brought our community together through a full schedule of creative programming and laid an excellent foundation to grow the event in 2023,” said Lane.

According to organizers, those attending are invited to come in costume and participate in a cosplay contest with an opportunity to win prizes.

Lane said volunteers are needed to help make the event a success. The deadline to volunteer is March 3.
