ESCANABA, Mich. (WJMN) – Bay College is firing up its phasers, lasers, and record players for the return of its pop-culture event with BAY-CON STRIKES BACK.

Featuring dozens of tables with everything from modern and classic video games, toys, records, comics, art, and more the one-day event is set to take over the Joseph Heirman University Center on the Escanaba campus on Saturday, April 22.

New this year is live music from a band named, Millennial’s Falcon, plus a cosplay contest, a trivia contest from Nerdology, and special guest voice actor Sean Chiplock.

Wiles Food Service returns its Taco Kitchen food truck.

Among the vendor tables, you’ll find a vintage video game room, pinball room, Rock Band station, and a Zombie EMT/Paramedic Lab.

There are also rumblings of a treat for Magic the Gathering fans.
