The Toy & Action Figure Museum, 111 S. Chickasaw in Pauls Valley for the second year will celebrate “International Superhero Day.”

Last year, the museum hosted more than 120 original superheroes on the first Saturday in August. This year, the museum hopes for even more.

The museum invites people to dress in costumes of their own, original superheroes on Aug. 3.

“I want to see what people would come up with if they had a chance to be a superhero,” Stark said of last year’s event.
