|Beauty and the Beast:
The Creature There Has Never Been
July 11 - 13, 2014
Today the candle passes from these virtual tunnels to the planners of the real world summer convention. Whether you think of the conventions as family reunions, hugfests, Beauty and the Beast summer camp, or have another definition of your own, it’s always a joy to be part of a gathering of those with like interests... and, let’s face it, like obsessions.
This summer’s convention will be held in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. (Our hotel is technically in Bloomington, directly across the street from the Mall of America.) The dates for the con are July 11-13; but many of us stay Wednesday to Wednesday. Before and after the convention there will be add-on trips to show you around the Twin Cities area and to allow more time to enjoy the company of your old and new friends and acquaintances.
There will be ample opportunity for good conversation, fun, silliness, serious socializing and buying can’t-live-without-it Beauty and the Beast items. And of course, the always anticipated, annual viewing of a certain video that doesn't officially exist. If you've enjoyed yourself here at Winterfest Online, know that our live, in-person cons are ten times more fun! For some of us that week in July is the highlight of our whole year.
But in the midst of all our fun, we always remember those who need Helpers. As is our tradition, we are sponsoring a local charity: Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless.
You're part of us now! Join the circle! We'd love to meet you!
