“Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes! Meet costumed capers, celebrate community heroes, and discover your own powers on Superhero Sunday.”

The path to geekdom, often starts when we are children; perhaps it was with a comic book, a film or a show. As a parent, you want to share that experience with your children. Conventions are a great way to do so; but the crowds can be overwhelming for young children. The Please Touch Museum’s Superhero Sunday Family Festival is a great con-alternative for little geeks. On Sunday, September 16, you and your whole family can celebrate heroes of all shapes and sizes! Superhero Sunday is from 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and cost a general admission ticket of $19.
