Houghton's Geek U.P. mini-convention is back again this year on Saturday.

The convention is happening in the Memorial Union Building ball room on Michigan Tech's campus. Attendees can expect a wide variety of booths, vendors and activities from the con, including some video game tournaments.

The convention will also have guest appearances from celebrities including Dean Haglund from the X-Files, and Patricia Summersett, the voice of Zelda from Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

"We do this all for charity and we have an artist’s alley, vendors, celebrities, autograph sessions, and video game tournaments. It's just a lot of fun for the entire family," said Shana Porteen, the Co-Founder of Geek U.P.

Tickets to geek up are $10 for adults, and kids 14 years old and younger and Michigan Tech students for $5.
