Last weekend’s Eternal Con 2014 was even more colorful and lively than I expected – with sci-fi, horror, comics artists, comic books & other collectibles, gaming, celebrities, and costumes – outside and inside the Cradle of Aviation Museum.

Garden City, New York, U.S. - June 14, 2014 - L-R, DIMITRIOS HARITOS, CHRIS HARITOS, and STEVE CARABELLO, all of the Selden Centereach area, from the Long Island Ghostbusters, a charitable volunteer group, are at Eternal Con, the annual Pop Culture Expo, with costumes, Comic Books, Collectibles, Gaming, Sci-Fi, Cosplay, Horror, and held at the Cradle of Aviation Museum on Long Island.

A few of the many people I got a chance to see were Armored Combat League members USA Knights, Amtgard & Dagorhir, the charitable volunteer group Long Island Ghostbusters, ZIPPY DEE THE WONDER DUMMY, LINDSAY LOWE Comics fashionista, members of NYC Harry Potter meetup group “The Group That Shall Not Be Named,” and actress CATHERINE MARY STEWART.

And it certainly was family fun, for Saturday morning, hours before I visited, my older daughter’s family enjoyed watching the Cosplay Parade, visiting booths selling rare Transformers, and more.

Friday night, I went back in time to A Night in Bethlehem, where visitors enjoyed grinding olivesmaking beeswax candles and other activities at re-creations of shops from two thousand years ago, and experienced a Living Nativity manger scene with Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus, complete with animal stable.

Garden City, New York, USA. December 6, 2013. Visitors experience the nativity scene at the manger, with Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus, the Holy Family, at A Night in Bethlehem, an annual Advent at the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, on Long Island, on December 6, 7, and 8.
