Expect everything from artists displaying their stylized, human-like lions and tigers and bears to an improv comedy night, a campfire-themed story hour with free hot cocoa and a dance party every evening through Sunday. In addition to specific events, you'll want to check out the attendees themselves. Be prepared for a zoo of costume-wearing Furries ranging from your basic ears-and-a-tail to mascot-like fur suits to full-body paint and everything in between. "When it comes to Furries, you can be whatever you want to be," says Furry Brandyn Christensen. "I personally know two otters and a dragon."
Tickets range from $50 to $1,500 (depending on sponsorship level). For more information, hop, crawl or slither over to www.rockymountainfurcon.org.
