Thousands of people flocked to the Halifax Convention Center this weekend for the return of Hal-Con, dubbed the largest science fiction convention in Atlantic Canada.
The People’s Convention was suspended in 2020 and drastically reduced in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organizers couldn’t be happier to see her refreshed.
“Hal Coon is the community for me,” said community spokesperson Jarrod Beckham.
“These are the people you share your time with who understand you on a level that some people might not understand the hobbies and passions you care about, whether it’s Star Trek or animation,” he stated.

Beckham said organizers expect about 15,000 people to walk through the doors of the Halifax Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday.
