Posted

Alamogordo MainStreet in partnership with Flickinger Center of Performing Arts & Patrons Hall presented Atomicon 2022 on Saturday, May 4.

This event is Alamogordo’s version of “Comic-Con,” an international comic book convention and nonprofit multi-genre entertainment event that is held annually in San Diego, California.
A comic book convention or comic con event has a primary focus on comic books and comic book culture, in which comic book fans gather to meet creators, experts, and each other.
For the Alamogordo event, MainStreet gathered themed vendors, performers, and guests dressed in costume as possible to fill the streets. 
 
There was a costume contest, entertainment, vendors, food trucks, live music and more.
