Organizers are hard at work preparing for the third annual Ratha Con Convention, taking place Saturday, April 26 at the Athens Community Center.

Previously a comic and sci-fi/fantasy convention, the event has been re-classified as a pop culture convention, incorporating gaming, comics, costume contests and displays by local artists and collectors.
