Rocky Mountain Fur Con is one of Denver's most unusual annual spectacles, and it's growing by leaps and bounds. According to the event's website, the 2012 bash was among the ten largest in the U.S., with 200 "fursuiters" and 863 total attendees. Moreover, organizers are already prepping "Lucky 13," the fifties-era casino-themed 2013 version, scheduled for August 2-4 at the Doubletree Hotel.
