emos, puppet shows for the younger set, burlesque music, miles of cruelty-free merchandise, raffles, health-conscious pep talks, cooking programs and more.

    I had a great time as an emcee for both days and at the after party. Definitely buy those vip tickets and avoid the wait is a comment I heard time and time again. Looking forward to next year!

    It looks like VIP tix for me next year. I waited just over 2 hrs! I honestly can't believe I waited that long, but when all was said & done we had a good time!

    Just curious how long people waited /are waiting (if u didn't buy VIP tix). We're in line now & someone said they have been waiting 3 hrs (which I doubt) & finally decided to just leave. It's my first time here, so I'm just trying to get an idea. Thanks!
