Heroes & Sidekicks at the Panama City Mall

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Is Dad your superhero? Some locals got the chance to spend time with all types of superheroes Saturday.

The Panama City Mall hosted a "Heroes and Sidekicks" event to celebrate Father's Day.

The event was hosted in partnership with Panama City Creative Con.

Kids -- and big kids -- got the chance to meet superheroes, participate in art projects and check out comic books.

The event also included a parent-child superhero costume contest.

"We love superheroes. We just watched Wonder Woman which was awesome movie and we thought we'd come out and support our superhero, which is daddy," said Crystal Oliva, who was celebrating Father's Day with her family.
