Heroes and Villains Fan Fest NY/NJ: Reunited And It Felt So Good!

Heroes and Villains Fan Fest (HVFF) NY/NJ 2017 is in the books. HVFF never fails to provide fans with endless fun and frivolity all in a family-style atmosphere! While I have attended many Fan Fest events over the past couple years, it is HVFF NY/NJ that will always hold a special place in my heart. Not only was it my very first Fan Fest event back in 2016, it occurred during a snowstorm big enough to shut down New Jersey. Even though the first day of the event was canceled, everyone rallied to create an experience of a lifetime… and not even “snowmageddon” could keep the Nocking Point party down! Bonds were created that hold strong to this day. It was heartwarming to reunite and reminisce with my fellow fans as we celebrated yet another festive HVFF weekend. Needless to say, stepping back onto the convention floor felt like coming home…

Heroes and Villains Fan Fest definitely created more memories I will not soon forget. All celebrity guests on hand were absolutely delightful and engaging. Special mention must go to Stephen Amell. Stephen sadly could not make it for the first day of the convention but, he came in early and stayed until after closing to accommodate all those that came to see him. He is a perfect example of… “It’s not just fandom. It’s family.” I cannot wait for next year!
