Off To Fandom Fest

With a bit of trepidation for the weather, I’ll admit!  104 degrees Fahrenheit?  Louisville, what are you thinking????

But balancing that is huge excitement for the ‘umbrella’ event that covers fantasy, SF, Manga, Anime, movies, costuming, horror, movies, film making and, well, everything that makes life fun and exciting!  There is a 30 page guide to the event, to give you an idea of how many things are going on.

And movie stars galore!  Bruce Campbell!!

If you are curious, take a peek here at the Fandom Festival Site. 

I’m off to a fabulous weekend.
