The first day of C2E2 was on Friday, April 21st, 2017, at the South Building at McCormick Place, located at 2301 S. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, Illinois. There are various panels that fans can visit, vendors, publishers, and the two fan favorites, “Artist Alley” and the various cosplayers seen throughout the show floor. With the size of this event and limited hours on this first day, my pictures were limited, but here’s a few that my wife and I took during our short time there. More pictures will come soon, from the second and third days at this event. Enjoy the photos, and stay tuned for more coverage of C2E2 2017!
