Flint ComixCon recap

Motor City Geek attended the 8th annual Flint ComixCon at the Flint Farmers’ Market last month and is here with a recap!  This was an event I have been looking forward to for quite some time; downtown Flint is quite nice so any excuse to visit the Flint Farmer’s Market is welcome.

The event was kicked off by the 7th annual Superhero 5K Run and 1K Fun Run.  The race was hosted by the Weiss Child Advocacy Center and all proceeds went to help the children of Genesee County that have been abused, abandoned, and neglected.  There were adults and children of all ages dressed up in Superhero costumes and capes to partake in this family friendly run!
