Orlando's Megacon looks like it's going to be another incredible geeky fun time. The largest comic book, anime, gaming and multi-media event in the southeastern U.S. will be held at the Orange County Convention Center from March 21-23, 2004.
Megacon is a great family outing filled with fun things to do and famous people to see. There will be video gaming rooms and the Supercon 2K, RPGs, LARPs, card and miniature gaming events. The kids can have a blast with the Skiffytowwn Heroes, while teens and adults pair off with Speed dating. And everyone can enjoy anime events, belly dancing demos, an Indy Film Festival, catch up on the latest upcoming movie trailers, professional panel rooms, a Saturday evening dance and a late night adults only dance, and costume contests. And, of course, one of the most popular things is the dealers room filled with fun for all ages and the opportunity to get to meet favorite media guests and comic book guests.
