Gearing Up For ConnectiCon

I have attended ConnectiCon for almost 10 years. First, I went as a musical performer, then on my own, then with my teenage nephew, then with my daughter, then with both of my kids, and finally with my kids and their friends along for the ride. I just keep inviting people because it’s really fun!

Each year, we meet up with many of the same people who I only see once a year at ConnectiCon. We all have our favorite things to do, but always meet up for some group activities as well. I had waited until my kids were teenagers to take them, so I wouldn’t just be babysitting at my favorite con.

Is ConnectiCon right for you—or you and your family? First, see if you would like a big con or a little one.

Then, here’s a rundown about this particular con.

Want to be part of the action? My daughter was in their Artists’ Alley for a couple of years. I wrote about her experience there, plus all of the other interesting things we got into: The first year selling tea art and the second selling photographs and taking commissions.

We have a very busy summer. However, we are looking forward to a weekend away from reality, where we see old friends, dance, dress up, laugh, play games, find something new to obsess about, and have a good time with the whole family.

Rebecca Angel was one of those kids that put the dragon book on top of her pile in the hopes that someone would say, "Hey, I'm into that stuff too!" Alas, she had to wait until she was an adult to find fellow geeks. Luckily, she married one and their kids are too.
