Anime lovers gather in Sparks for SNAFU Con

SPARKS, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- SNAFU Con returned to the Reno-Sparks area Friday at a new venue.

SNAFU -- Sierra Nevada Anime Fans Unite -- kicked off its sixth annual celebration of anime and gaming at the Nugget resort-casino in Sparks.

"Everybody's got a little bit of nerd in them," said Nathan Sindar, the convention chairman. "You've got something from your childhood -- a cartoon or show -- something that you love and enjoy. A lot of people love Marvel franchise comic books, anime - if you happen to get into that scene - or video games. So if you have a little piece of that, go ahead and let it out and come down and enjoy it."

Tickets for the entire weekend cost $40 per person at the door, and daily passes are going for $20. The event runs through Sunday.
