The 40th annual Chattacon event

Chattanooga, TN (WDEF)- Chattacon celebrated its 40th anniversary this weekend with a nice turn out.

The annual science fiction and fantasy convention was held at the Chattanooga Choo Choo.

The convention draws over a thousand fans to Chattanooga each year and its popularity continues to grow.

Last year, the event brought in half a million dollars to the local economy.

The Chattacon publicity director says, "it has been a really good weekend we had a lot of people come from all over the country this is our 40th anniversary so we have had a lot of past directors and a lot of past guests and just people who haven’t been here for awhile and decided to come back so we have had really good numbers the weather was great until today we had a little rain but it has been a beautiful weekend."

After a successful weekend, they have already started schudling for the 2016 convention next January.
