Is it a really good convention? I live in CT and am debating on if I should take the trip to go or not...
I think it's awesome, but that's kinda subjective as I am staff now. XD But I had started attending it since it first started. We're probably considered a small to medium sized con now expecting 3000+ attendees this year - which happens to be our 7th. Zenkaikon is also in a brand new venue, which I am very excited for. smile
