pow-parade-route-smPOW! it’s the sound Batman’s fist used to make when the Caped Crusader landed a devastating blow on a bad guy’s jaw.  Now, thanks to Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale, Batman is a little more serious these days, but that doesn’t mean that we have to be!

On April 26th at 11am, POW! will stand for Parade of Wonders and will be downtown Calgary’s first ever Cosplay parade!

Parade Marshals will include Mayor Naheed Nenshi, and the principal cast of the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood including John Barrowman, Eve Myles, and Gareth David-Lloyd. 

Other guests include Casper Van Dien (from Starship Troopers); Dylan Bruce and Jordan Gavaris (from Orphan Black), and the closing ceremonies will feature Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart (WWE Wrestling Legend) and Ian Mcdiarmid (Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars).

Additionally, downtown Calgary will see more the 300 Calgary Expo attendees decked out in Cosplay ranging from Storm Troopers to Steampunks, Zombies to Quidditch players, and much, much more.

Whether you’re attending the Calgary Expo for your annual dosage of all things nerdy, or you’re just looking for a wonderful break from your boring office environment, come down to the parade route and checkout the parade that everyone will be talking about from here to Alderaan.

(editor’s note: it’s come to attention that Alderaan was destroyed by the Empire, we apologize if this offended anyone.)
