Hundreds of furries – adults dressed in anthropomorphic animal suits – will be descending on Orlando this week.
Central Florida's Furry community will gather at the Megaplex Anthropomorphic Convention 2018
at SeaWorld Doubletree in Orlando from Aug. 3 to Aug. 5. This year's theme is "The Furnesian Islands," a look into South East Pacific cultures.
At the convention, there will be a variety of activities and performances, including puppetry, improv and live music.
The Megaplex Convention first started in 2002 and each year, it helps raise money to benefit The C.A.R.E. Foundation
, which specializes in rescue help for local wildlife and abused pets. Representatives of the foundation will speak at the FurryCon and usually bring in a few animals as well.
