Thousands Attend Superman Celebration


By WSIL Manager

METROPOLIS -- Saturday was a big day in Metropolis, as the annual Superman Celebration hosted its most-attended day of the festival.

There were plenty of Superman celebrities on-hand for the festivities, including former man of steel Dean Cain. Folks had the chance to meet the stars and get a few autographs. Superman enthusiasts came from all over the region to attend the celebration.
"We can only come to one day; it's a day trip for us. It's not one of the big cons that cost a million dollars to go to, but we still get to come, see some great Superman stuff, the people in costume, and it's a lot of fun," says Evansville, Indiana visitor Adam Fortney.
The Superman Celebration wraps up Sunday afternoon with a costume contest.
