Yesterday I was able to visit Wenatchee and attend Wen-Con for a few hours. On Friday night I saw an advertisement in Leavenworth at the Krampus Kave, as my wife and I were spending the weekend nearby.
On Saturday morning, I arrived shortly after the doors opened at 10:00AM. I enjoyed walking through the exhibition hall and visiting the vendors. The floor was full of cos-players, and the exhibition hall included artists, game stores, comic shops, and a variety of other relevant pop-culture vendors. My favorite was the film-accurate replica of the Back to the Future Delorean. There was also a great Ghostbuster and a Star Wars Scout Trooper. I enjoyed browsing the old miniatures and spent some time in the video gaming room.
It was a fun way to spend a few hours and I think Wen-Con had a great inaugural event to build upon for future years.
