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!
