There’s a NEW show coming to Portland this year and it’s a joint show with Rose City Comic Con and it’s Play Fair PDX! Anything that ads to the experience of a convention I am all for! I myself have never been to a Play Fair event, mostly because they have always been on the east coast.
I mean, watch this!
How amazing does that look?
Also you get access to BOTH Play Fair AND Rose City! This is exciting! I can not WAIT to take my kids to this!
