Last weekend I attended the Edmonton Expo for the first time. The events, the costumes, the people … and there were a lot of people. I spoke to one of the employees there and they informed me that they expected over 20000+ this year. Wow! There was such a diverse crowd but everyone was there to share the love for the same thing … Stan Lee. Just kidding, there were other amazing guests as well, too many to name.
This is such a great event for the city. I love the fact that local artists, celebrities and businesses were also well represented. Sci-fi, fantasy, tv, movies, video games, anime … pretty much anything and everything fun was there. Cosplayers of all ages were always willing to stop and take a picture. The atmosphere was fantastic. Everyone was friendly, happy, and having an awesome time.
Final thought … Mini donuts!
