There’s two big events to nerd out at today in Vermont

If you’re looking for something to do today, you’re in luck: there’s a pair of events running in Vermont today if you like games, cosplay, and comics.

The first is the Champlain Games Festival, which is taking place at the the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction. It’s a showcase of locally-made video, PC, console, VR, mobile, board and card games. Tickets are $15 at the door ($10 for youths 11-17 and free for 10 and under). Members of the 501st Legion’s Green Mountain Squad will also be there. Doors open at 10am.

If you’re into comics, the Green Mountain Comics Expo is taking place at the Barre Civic Center in Barre, featuring local comic artists, cosplayers, and quite a bit more. The event runs on Saturday and Sunday: tickets are $20 for a weekend pass.
