Ghost Busters, Jake & Finn from Adventure Time, Superman and many other characters all stopped by for the return of Stockton-Con. The event relocated to the Stockton Arena from Pacific Spanos Center on the University of the Pacific campus where it debuted last year.
Stockton-Con director Mike Millerick said more than 7,000 attended the event at the Stockton Arena, up from around 4,000 its opening year.
"I was just thrilled with the turnout," Millerick said. "The community just came out and supported us, even better than they did last year, and it was just wonderful."
Admission was reduced for attendees who brought clothing to donate to St. Mary's Dining Hall and United Way. The donation truck was almost full after the event ended. Last year's Stockton-Con collected almost 2,000 pounds of clothing.
"It is a fun event and people had a great time," Millerick said. "Bottom line is people who came to the event helped to make a difference with St. Mary's and United Way."
Proceeds from ticket sales, vendor registration and auction items benefit St. Mary's Dining Hall and United Way.
