Bigger every year, Hal-Con is the East Coast’s most popular sci-fi, gaming, and fantasy festival and it returns this month. Scheduled guests include Star Trek: The Next Generation’s LeVar Burton (“Geordi LaForge”) and John de Lancie (“Q”), plus comic artist Brenda Hickey, author Delilah S. Dawson, cosplay guru Cassie Seaboyer, and many more. Hal-Con usually sells out, so get your tickets early and catch all the action at the new Halifax Convention Centre on Argyle Street. hal-con.com
