FAN EXPO Canada is helping welcome 90 new citizens with the Geekiest Citizenship Ceremony that Toronto has ever seen. The public ceremony, taking place before the show officially opens on August 22, will bring together new Canadian citizens, their friends and family, and costumed characters including the 501st Legion for the ultimate celebration of Canadian pride.
When the reception begins, all new citizens and their guests will be invited to don capes and walk the red carpet for a photo session before digging into a pop culture inspired cake. Following the reception, all guests will be invited to storm the convention floor two hours before the show officially opens and enjoy the rest of their first day as Canadian citizens.
