10. The Denver Convention Center is the size of a small city.

9. Multiple stages help give Decadence the feel of a festival instead of a show.

8. The performers are more than the artists. Decadence hired stilted dancers, decked out in Christmas lights and face-paint to roam throughout the crowds for entertainment. 7. The decorations in-between the stages resemble Candy Land figurines. Lit up glittering tree forests, curving glowing sky-beams and cityscapes mapped together through LED boxes were some decorations filling up the Colorado Convention Center. 6. There is a carousel. Yes, like with plastic horses that ride in a circle. Concert-goers can wait in line and take a ride for free, just like at the county fair.
