Ai-Kon brings the anime love early in 2011 with an event planned for Saturday, January 15th. A pretty sweet way to start off an anime enthusiast’s year, no?

The Ai-Kon Winter Festival is a one day event at the Winnipeg Convention Center, filled with local talents showing off costumes, art and other things related to the anime culture. It sounds like it’s going to be a slightly smaller (and colder) version of the huge multi-day event they normally hold in July.

Hit up The Ai-Kon Homepage for the finer points and to learn more.

Thanks Katie H. and Oliver D.
