Aaron Viera, of Lancaster, poses on Penn Square dressed as Miles Morales, Friday, March 22, 2019. Zenkaikon began Friday at the Lancaster County Convention Center.

Zenkaikon 2019 is in town for "Lucky 13."

The convention for fan communities of anime, Japanese culture, science fiction, fantasy, comics and video gaming is back in Lancaster for its 13th convention. 

So if you saw cosplayers wandering the Square or hanging out at Central Market or a noodle shop, you can believe your eyes. The convention runs through Sunday at the Lancaster County Convention Center.

The festival includes speakers, a Pokemon World Tournament, the formal Cosplay Ball, the bawdy, adults-only Cosplay Burlesque and the Cosplay Masquerade competition.
