Outside of Syracuse: ColossalCon – The Vacation Convention

After many long months of winter in Syracuse, sometimes it’s nice to get away and go on vacation elsewhere. If you are a fan of anime, gaming, Japanese culture, and want to spend your weekend at a waterpark, ColossalCon is the convention you’ve been waiting for. ColossalCon takes place at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio. This year, it ran from June 2-5 and was packed full of cosplayers enjoying the sun.

ColossalCon offers a full convention experience with talented guests, such as Vic Mignogna and Chuck Huber; a huge Dealer’s Room and Artist Alley that offers everything a nerd could want to collect; a massive game room with arcade machines imported directly from Japan; and a great selection of fun, but also informative panels for any interest.
