Alright Fan Boys and Girls it’s that time of the year again, it’s San Diego Comic-Con 2017!

Whose ready to let their nerd flag fly and take on Comic-Con! Not me as I do not have a badge, but that’s ok because there is more to the event than the Halls and Convention Center. There is so many things to do and see without a badge. I think this is what makes the event so great, the fact that you can still have an amazing Comic-Con experience even if you are not holding a coveted badge. So here are some no badge events to check out this year!

Explore Downtown

One of the most cost effective and easiest ways to enjoy SDCC is just by walking around Downtown and by the Convention Center. You are sure to see many Cosplayers heading in and out of the Convention Center. They are usually happy to take photographs but please be sure to ask first. There is also lots of signage and displays promoting the event all over, so there is a feel of being apart of the event just by walking around the area.

Play Nintendo Challenge

This has to be my kids favorite place to visit during SDCC. The ballroom of the Marriott Marquis & Marina next to convention center is home to the Play Nintendo Challenge. This is a FREE event open to everyone to come in a play upcoming Nintendo Switch games and complete the challenge for some awesome prizes. There is also photo op areas and plenty of games to play.

Pre-Con at the Library

Stop by the San Diego Public Library this Tuesday July 18th for some pre Comic-Con fun. There will be discussion panels and a chance to watch a Quidditch match! The Quidditch demonstration is from 2pm – 4pm. The FREE event at the library is from 2pm to 8pm. And don’t forget to get a special edition SDCC library card and come back to the library all year!

The Laika Experience

Now this is going to be a can’t miss experience and will surely have some lines for it. The Laika Experience will be in San Diego along with props, sets and puppets from films such as Paranorman and Coraline for a very unique experience. You can visit this experience at 520 Fifth Ave from Thursday through Sunday.

Netflix

Visit the Hilton Hotel in Gaslamp for a very strange experience with Netflix. Open Thursday through Saturday 11am to 8pm and on Sunday 11am to 3pm. Enter the Upside Down with Stranger Things or stroll down the streets with Marvel’s The Defenders. There will also be giveaways, sneak peeks of upcoming originals and more.

There are so many great things happening downtown be sure to stop by and check it out! It really is amazing how much there is to see and do without a badge!
