WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Cosplay enthusiasts, anime fans, Trekkers and more experienced Ultracon 2020 this weekend at the Expo Center at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

Visitors came from different states to collect toys and games from hundreds of vendors.

The event featured a cosplay contest and guests, included Sam Jones from the movie Flash Gordon, were there signing autographs and posing for selfies.

Attendee Keith Elder enjoys the artwork he finds at Ultracon, "Each Con we go to, we try to go and get something from a different artist."

Attendee Justin Deering is a fan of the costumes seen at the event, "One of my favorite things to do is to look at all the cosplayers. You got people in these amazing Star Wars costumes walking around dressed as Stormtroopers, dressed like The Mandalorian."

Ultracon plans on hosting next year's event at the Expo Center again.
