Matsuricon 2019 has come and gone, but not without leaving us with so many glorious memories. It was an eventful weekend from the moment you walk into the convention center to when you try to pack your car to the brim with swag that you have accumulated over the weekend. From the seventeen guests that had attended to the wonderful charity auction they ran. There was so much to do and see in such a short amount of time. If you timed it out perfectly or if you just winged it, you were sure to have a blast.
If you arrived on Thursday there were activities that would keep you busy and having fun. Mostly in the form of games but at least it was something to feed your desire of what is to come. If you pre-registered you were able to pick it up and let the fun begin. From small events like Rock Paper Scissors Showdown to an 18+ Cards against Humanity session there were things to help get you pumped for the weekend at hand. Cosplayers were walking the floor and jamming to music. Old friendships are rekindled and new ones made right on the spot. The atmosphere in the hotel and the convention center was filled with laughter and joy. You could tell that it was going to be an exhilarating con this year.
Friday morning comes and you could see people flocking to the convention center to begin the amazing weekend. The staff did a wonderful job at handling the lines and it seemed to go fairly smooth.
