LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- A small-scale version of Comic-Con is taking place in Lafayette this weekend.

It is the fourth year for LaffyCon to be held at Carnahan Hall and this is the second year the event was held in Market Square.
There will be video game tournaments and panel discussions throughout the weekend.

Dressing up is optional and there are comic books and action figures for sale.

Organizer Nick Maxson said it's off to a great start.

"When you think about gaming out in your living room, it's cool to get people out of their house and to be able to see people," said Maxson. "Like you don't realize that some of these guys are from Lafayette and some people that work for huge name company and so everyone now knows Marvel is."

Sunday's festivities run from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m.
