Topic: Other Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4041 - I've been so busy celebrating my Birthday that I almost forgot to blog about the upcoming Winkie Con / Oz Con that is taking place in San Diego next weekend, July 31st thru August 2nd!
I attended the 50th Winkie Con last year, and blogged about it at this link, (blog #4012). I also blogged about Batton Lash interviewing the Wicked Witch, (blog #4013), which features a pretty darn funny video!
So yes, I'm familiar with Winkie Con, which is changing its name to Oz Con this year.
I'm attempting to attend most of the three days the convention is running, and suggest you take in at least one day if you are in Southern California. One day tickets will be sold at the door, or multiple day tickets. The online purchasing availability is already closed.
Here are a few links to help you decide to come down to Oz Con:

Here are links to the photo pages from last year's Winkie Con that I shot:
So... I'm letting you know that you don't have to be a Wizard of Oz fanatic to enjoy going to this convention. Last year was the first Winkie Con I ever attended! As a kid I had watched the Wizard of Oz film with Judy Garland several times on TV, and had actually read many of the Oz books by L. Frank Baum. But a fanatic about Oz? No, and I still had loads of fun at the 2014 Winkie Con. I'm sure you would enjoy at least a day at this con at the centrally located Town & Country Resort in the Mission Valley area of San Diego!
Thanks for reading, and I hope to see YOU there!
