This weekend (June 14th and 15th, 2014) the Eternal Con returns to Long Island and is, once again, and purports to be a convention experience “like no other”. Eternal Con is Long Island NY’s large-scale, multimedia, pop culture convention, which is held annually at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City. The convention brings together the best in Comicbooks, collectibles, gaming, Sci-Fi, cosplay, horror, and all things relating to pop culture. The 2013 event was such an overwhelming success — with upwards of 3,000 attendees — that this year’s show has expanded to two day, covering three floors and with over 250 tables of vendors. In addition to their large vendor space they also hold raffles, giveaways, as well as cosplay, special guests, a car show, movie screenings, full access to the Cradle of Aviation Museum (with paid admission) and much, more.
What sets this event apart from most other cons, is that this show is held is that it is held in an actual museum. They also have an IMAX theatre in the convention center where they show films and hold a cosplay contest. In addition to all that, Eternal Con also offers fans all of the usual convention amenities, including the chance to acquire autographs, attend panels, participate in Q&A sessions with the stars, gaming tournaments, portfolio review, as well as shop their large dealers area.
