FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) — Frankfort Comic Con is once again returning to the city, which is great news for the local economy.
Frankfort Comic Con will take place at the Capital Plaza Hotel Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Comic conventions tend to bring in a bunch of people not just locally, but from other cities, and even other countries in some cases. That’s why visitors are likely going to want to check out what Frankfort has to offer. Convention organizer Carmine De Santo brought the idea to the Frankfort tourist commission.
At first, they didn’t know what to expect. Comic conventions are generally held in bigger cities, but Frankfort con hasn’t failed to bring in a lot of business for Frankfort restaurants and attractions.
“We get a lot of also local business participation in the show as well. We have local food vendors, some big names like Pizza Inn is one of the sponsors of the show and you can get their food here tomorrow actually at the Capital Plaza Hotel and grab some of their food. It’s good to work with the businesses, and we’re very excited to be here,” De Santo said.
