SKH Weekend RoundUp: Comics, Crushes, Color Runs and More!

Once the smoke from all the area fires clears out, this weekend should shape up to be a smoking hot all on its own due to various offerings that await you, your family and friends. From the very arty TBA Fest to the cool yet still somewhat nerdy Rose City Comic Con there’s even places where you can crush grapes and get pelted by colorful corn starch this weekend.
