My Top 5 Must Attend Sci-Fi Conventions
These conventions are not the nerd Mecca's most people make them out to be. Although, in all honesty, many of us who attend them are proud to bear the nerd label.
Conventions often encompass anywhere from a couple of days to a week of events. Events include interviews and meet and greets with popular television show actors as well as actors from no longer running shows. Television shows and movies often do premiers of new seasons or commercials. Costume contests mean a lot of people attending come dressed up in extraordinary costumes. Literary figures are also on hand for autographs, book signings, discussion of their works and in general, being the awesome people they are.
If you are a fan of Sci-Fi, fantasy or horror television or movies, comic books, graphic novels or anything similar, attending a convention is a must. For the uninitiated, or for the fan who can't narrow down which to attend, here are my top 5 picks:
5. WonderCon - location varies
4. Wonderfest - Louisville, KY
3. Gen Con - Indianapolis, IN
2. Dragon Con - Atlanta, GA
1. Comic Con - San Diego, CA
