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.
