SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A taste of Comic-Con fun hits town early, featuring San Diego's cutest "underdogs."

PAWmicon returns, this year at the future site of Balboa Park's Comic-Con Museum (formerly the Hall of Champions.) The event invites dog fans out for a day of superhero-themed fun with their furry companions to benefit the Helen Woodward Animal Center's orphaned animals and programs.

The event will also host a canine and owner costume contest. Owners can enter their dog's cosplay (or pawsplay) into contests for superheroes, super villains, cartoon canines, pop culture pups, and dynamic duos for owners and their dogs.

For Instagram happy owners, several photo scenes will also be set up for pooches.

Visitors can also visit with pet vendors and artists, test their pop culture knowledge with trivia, enjoy children's activities, and win pet giveaways.

PAWmicon runs from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Admission is $10, with tickets also required to take part in trivia, and are available online here.
