Thousands of sci-fi and fantasy fans, many in costume, gathered at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Saturday for the second day of GalaxyCon.

The three-day event continues on Sunday and features celebrity appearances, panel discussions, board games, video games and collectibles. And lots of cosplayers and others in costume, all in a friendly, collegial atmosphere.

The event drew people from across Minnesota as well as nearby states.

Here are some scenes from Saturday at GalaxyCon.
