One of the most anticipated events in Philadelphia is postponed until late fall. Wizard World hopes to hold thief convention November 12-14 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, In Oaks, Pa. The convention originally scheduled for spring of 2020 had to postpone due to COVID-19. They sought out the expo center and scheduled their event for later this month. With COVID cases still on the rise, the decision was made to hold it later in the year. The fact that crowd size restrictions had a lot to do with it as well.
For those that don’t know, this convention is where people can meet their favorite actors and get selfies and autographs.It is very popular and draws about 100,000 people in Philadelphia .
