The lakecity once more descended on Columneetza this weekend to take part in the latest iteration of Hobby Con.
First started just over a year ago by volleyball coach and Columneetza teacher Tim Hurley, this event is designed as both a fundraiser for the girls’ volleyball team and a chance for lakecity residents of all ages to share their passions. After an enthusiastic first outing in the winter of 2018 and a respectful second effort in the spring of 2019, Hobby Con returned in force this weekend.
Taking inspiration from craft fairs like the Medieval Market, Hobby Con still gave people a chance to share what they love with the community be it planes, sports or anime. At the same time, small business owners and artisans got a chance to sell their wares in a less busy but still enjoyable market setting.
Hobby Con took place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will go again on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
