Imagicon fills a void

That first year science fiction conference has been replaced by a new first year sci-fi conference, Imagicon. The conference will be a little later than last year’s, taking place March 27-29 at the Sheraton Birmingham at the BJCC. 

Their website appears to be receiving constant updates and it sounds like something that wants to be a part of the local scene for some time to come. It’s already got some folks excited, like Nicki.

23rd Annual ONB St. Patrick’s Day Parade, downtown Birmingham

This year’s edition, as always, will travel from Five Points South and make its way to Linn Park along the Birmingham Green. It may also be a little more sci-fi than normal, since Omegacon, one of the largest sci-fi conventions in the southeast, will be in town and will march in the parade!

An unbelievable cast of sci-fi, horror and fantasy costumers will join in this year’s parade. From wookies to warlocks and Star Troopers to star ships, this will be one impressive cast of characters. Businesses and organizations that think they’d like to join the already impressive list of Birmingham area participants taking part in this year’s parade, please do.

For more information or to confirm your participation, call parade coordinator Linda Watts at 328-3595, ext. 106.

Cost: FREE
