Florida Xtravaganza Orlando will be returning for its fourth year this weekend at the Doubletree Resort by Seaworld Orlando. I’ve heard this is an awesome event from some of my friends so I’m looking forward to my first experience.

This year’s celebrity guests include The Walking Dead actor Theodus Crane; Barry Bostwick, most notably from The Rocky Horror Picture Show; Jaleel White from Family Matters (Steve Urkel); and, celebrating 30 years of A Christmas Story, actors Scott Schwatrtz (Flick), Ian Petrella (Randy), Zach Ward (Scut Farkas), and Yano Anaya (Grover Dill).

Ever since Vulcan: Away Mission Orlando, I’ve had a tradition of getting my picture taken in costume with actors my mom loves and I’m hoping to continue that tradition with the cast of A Christmas Story this year. Of course, I’m also looking forward to the tables of comics and other exhibitors in attendance. You never know what you will find when it comes to these events!

If you plan on attending, make sure you stop at the 501st Legion table and say hi, or donate a dollar to charity for the chance to shoot a stormtrooper with Nerf guns. It’s going to be a blast!

Tickets to the show are $20 at the door and children 10 and younger get in free with a paying adult. For more information, check out their website or connect with them on Facebook.
