BREWER-This weekend wrapped up the 4th annual Bangor Comic and Toy Halfway Con
The Bangor Comic and Toy Halfway Con was the perfect place for fans of video games, crafts, and scary movies.
“Just a fun weekend to come in and meet local crafters and vendors and get to meet a celebrity, tons of video gaming going on, cosplay, it’s just a good time,” says Bangor Comic & Toy Con Co-Owner Will Hesketh.

While the full-on comic and toy con takes place in the spring, Hesketh says the halfway con was this weekend to keep people interested while they wait for the next one.
He says there were over a hundred people of all ages who came to enjoy what the halfway con had to offer.
“The demographic is huge, we try to aim for anything from the little kids having something for them, to the parents to the grandparents. At the end of the day, we’re all still kids at heart so they’re always having something for that nostalgia factor,” Hesketh says.
And he says some of the money they make helps them give back to the community.
“We’ve worked with Extra Life, we’ve worked the homeless shelter giving out Christmas toys and giving back to the homeless. We try to give back to the community as much as we can,” Hesketh says.
