More celebrity appearances added to growing list of fall convention’s activities

Dallas Fan Days™ – one of the best comics, sci-fi, horror, anime and gaming events in Texas – returns Oct. 14-16, 2016, at the Irving Convention Center. Just in time for the spooky holiday itself, Dallas Fan Days announces its agenda for the entire 3-day convention: a full schedule packed with celebrity panels, cosplay contests, gaming and more.

While fans love wearing their costumes all weekend long at this event, it’s also the perfect time to test out Halloween costumes in the costume events taking place. Saturday will include a Cosplay Red Carpet at 2 p.m. and a costume contest for adults at 5:30 p.m. On Sunday, kids can jump into the costume fun with a kids costume contest at 3 p.m. Gaming rooms and a Doctor Who activity room where guests can dive deep into a fan favorite Sci-Fi show will be open throughout the weekend.

In addition, celebrities such as Harry Potter’s Matthew Lewis and Star Trek’s John de Lancie and Michael Dorn, along with many others, will participate in panels and Q&A sessions where fans can get to know their favorites even better.
