Here's what you missed last year if you didn't go to Anthrocon ... or see furries around town

About 6,000 fans of humanized animals are descending on Pittsburgh for the four-day Anthrocon 2015 convention that starts Thursday at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Many Pittsburghers take part in furry watching during the event, bringing even more people downtown. The event is a boon to Pittsburgh businesses, especially along Penn and Liberty near the convention center.

e is a reminder of what you'll see downtown this weekend, a slideshow of photographs from Anthrocon 2014 taken by attendees.

This year's fursuit parade, which takes place at 1 p.m. Saturday, will leave the convention center for the first time so the public can watch.

Here is an another article on WTAE-TV's website, about their coverage of the weekend's Anthrocon convention:

PITTSBURGH —WTAE Digital Producer Daisy Ruth will be taking us inside the Anthrocon convention this year and hang out with the Furries! You can follow along in our "Furries" Live Wire: http://wtae.tv/6010B8lfQ

Anthrocon, the convention for those fascinated with Anthropomorphics, returns to Pittsburgh July 9-12, 2015.

If you see a furry this weekend downtown, don’t be afraid to say hello to these people who may be a bit different than you. Ask (stress: ASK) for a selfie or photo with them, and send them in to WTAE using #WTAEfurries.
