Bonn. Blood-thirsty vampires, zombies and haunted houses: Briefly before Halloween, the „scary“ event FearCon has kicked off on Friday in the Maritim Hotel in Bonn.
Until Sunday, fans are meeting up for parties, workshops and musical performances from the world of horror and magic. Approximately 5,000 visitors are expected, said a spokesperson for the organisers. The FearCon is the first of its kind in Bonn. Many movie and tv celebrities will be on location for autograph sessions.
The star guest is the British actor Joseph Morgan (36), known from the US mystery series „The Originals“. The FedCon GmbH has hosted fan conventions since 1992, with different themes and celebrities - among those events is also the science fiction event under the same name FedCon. Director Dirk Batholomä also initiated the German version of the pop culture event Comic Con in Stuttgart in 2016. (Original text: dpa Translation: Mareike Graepel)
