Smaller than Comic-Con, local Gnome-Con still shines with promise

Most have heard about the massive media event in California called Comic-Con.
 The four-day event features movie stars, comic book artists, and fans from all over the country.

Savannah has its own such event--though on a smaller scale.
   "Gnome-Con" is expected to bring as many as a thousand people to Savannah next Spring.
    Organizer Wayne Hug gins says the typical Gnome Con attendee spends around five-hundred dollars for the weekend. That can turn into quite a lot of revenue for the city of Savannah and the businesses located here.

Huggins says a careful effort to get the word out about the convention and to attract big name entertainment and lecturers could result in a bigger, more robust convention year after year.
