Remember when being a nerd was considered a bad thing?  These days, nerds and geeks are the coolest dudes in town.  And hundreds of them will gather next weekend at North Park in Billings for an event straight out of the movie "Role Models" called Mini Con.

The organizers are hoping this will be like our own version of the famous Comic Con festivals with writers, artists, comic book enthusiasts and a bunch of freaks and geeks dressed up in costumes.

Who knows, they might even stage a fake battle in the park with toy swords.  Somehow we get the feeling, there's gonna be more than a few die hard Rush fans at this event.  If you want to check out Mini-Con next Saturday, you can get more info online at or on their Facebook page.
