Anthrocon, winner of Best Local Annual Convention

For one wacky weekend in July, Downtown Pittsburgh is invaded by a large-scale menagerie of furry characters. There are wolves, cats, bears, foxes, dogs and more — but not the four-legged kind. This convention celebrates two-legged furries, folks who dress as anthropomorphic animals from art and literature.
