[Conventions] Wish You Were Here – April 30-May 3

Wish you were here

By now, we are all sick of staying home. There were things we wanted to do, people we wanted to see. For some of us, we had things planned months in advance that have fallen down the drain.

Today, we are going to remind you of what you have missed this weekend in the convention world.

No, it’s not a celebration of Demi Lovato or Demi Moore. It is the Des Moines’ Annual Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Gaming Convention. Unfortunately they had to cancel this year.

Texas Frightmare
