Thousands came out to Fan Expo Vancouver in downtown Vancouver on Saturday dressed up as their favourite super heroes and science fiction characters.

Fan Expo aims to celebrate all things pop culture with events involving celebrities from popular TV shows and movies, “how-to” workshops and other events, as well as stalls for fans to purchase related merchandise.
