The official kick off to the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo returns! The POW! Parade of Wonders is an annual cosplay parade celebrating pop culture and creativity in Calgary’s downtown, starring Expo’s special guests and YOU, the fans of Calgary Expo. It’s free to participate but there is a catch: to walk in the parade you must be decked out in cosplay (costume-play). Expo goers and downtown office workers alike get involved and join in on the fun and witness this unique event. Totally family friend, and FREE! This year we’re celebrating our 5th Anniversary, and POW! will be bigger and better than ever! The 2017 POW! Parade of Wonders will take place on April 28, 2017 on Stephen Avenue starting on 8th Street at 10:30 am on Stephen Avenue, and concluding at Olympic Plaza. Last year, over 2,200 cosplayers paraded through the streets of Downtown Calgary for over 10,000 spectators. You don’t want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind celebration!
