Fort William Historical Park is daring to go where no one in Thunder Bay has gone before.
Park officials on Friday confirmed they’ll be hosting Fan-Con from July 18-20 in conjunction with the Staal Foundation Open.
Highlighting the guest list is none other than Walter Koenig, best known as Ensign Pavel Chekov on the original Star Trek series.
Also coming to the celebration of super heroes, comics and collectibles is Daphne Ashbrook, who stars as Grace Hollaway in the Dr. Who television movie and was also had a guest-starring role in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
The three-day event, which will also include appearances from Iron Man, the Hulk, Spider Man and Thor, features plenty of music too.
Canadian favourite David Wilcox, Chilliwack and the Stampeders will be joined on stage by tribute bands Simply Queen, KISS impressionists Destroyer and AC/DC specialists Thunderstruck.
Also scheduled to be on hand are the hockey-playing Staal brothers, who will sign autographs for their fans.
The events will wrap up each night with an after-party at the astronomy centre.
Fort officials say camping and concert packages are available for the weekend.
Ticket and scheduling information will be available on the Fort William Historical Park website.
