FurFright, the Northeast's very own Anthropomorphic Halloween Convention (October 23 & 24, Sheraton Hotel, Windsor Locks CT), is almost upon us, and we're hoping you all come out and join in the furry fun. Some of the most talented artists, animators, writers, and fursuiters in the fandom will be at FurFright, helping us make this young con something special.
