Ah, Dragon Con... Spanning four days, five hotels (plus the AmericasMart), and boasting attendance numbers over 70,000, it's one of the World's largest geek conventions. It's also the convention I cut my teeth on way back in the *coughcough1990scoughcough*. Though it's changed a lot over the years, Dragon Con will always hold a special place in my heart. There are tons of people who will never miss a year, and tons more who have Dragon Con on their geeky bucket list (and for good reason). This was the 29th year for Dragon Con, and it did not disappoint.

|My only parade photo was totally worth it. Stormtrooper car FTW!|
|I could not love this woman more!|
Between the cosplay, guests (stay tuned for my interviews with some of the convention's awesome guests), vendors, charity work (they raised over $100,000 for the Lymphoma Research Foundation and held a massive blood drive throughout the weekend), weddings, and panels galore there's something for everyone at Dragon Con. I'll be there next year, will you?
