3. The annual Anthrocon -- Lions, tigers and bears -- oh, my! I'm not referring to the Pittsburgh Zoo but rather the people who feel comfortable enough to dress as their favorite animal characters roaming the streets for Anthrocon.
The annual gathering attracts thousands to Pittsburgh each year. If you plan on visiting Pittsburgh during the convention, chances of finding a hotel are slim, but odds are good that you'll see someone dressed as your favorite cartoon animal walking about.
