I really want to get to one of these conventions one year. I'm sure if/when I get into the business you will see me there on a yearly basis.

Nice report.

I thought ACErs got in too, though I guess that would be a bad idea. :omg:

ACE is a "Buyer Member" of IAAPA. ( in my opinion, a waste of user dues needed to pay the fee) They have a booth too. However it's not really "for" ACErs or enthusiasts. Last year, when I didn't go to cover it in a media manner like I have done here for TPR, I totally felt out of place. Especially wearing a badge saying I'm a buyer even though about the only thing I could afford in there was the dippin dots...

Nice Pics Joe!

That show is always such a blast to go to! I was lucky enough to attend the show in 2003 for my employer. I ended up bringing my kids along, so we make it kind of a mini-vacation. I don't know who had more fun, me or my kids! ;)

Anyway, the Morris Costume booth is the best! There's so many cool & spooky creatures in that booth (including the guy puking in the barrel & the electric chair). My kids were so freaked out by all the monsters in that booth they stayed about two aisles away! The food in that place is incredible! Between every junk food imaginable, Ben and Jerry's and Dippin' Dots, you definately won't go hungry (and it's all free!!!) =)

The cost to get into this show is pretty steep if you're not an IAAPA member. I think it's like $75.00 if you belong to IAAPA. If you're a non-member, it's quite a bit more expensive (I think it's around $250.00).

Have a great time at the show & keep the pictures coming!

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Great photo's!!!
Of course it would be much better to have Pepsi than coke at theme parks!!

I don't know... I'm pretty sure Dr Pepper is where its at!!! Too bad no parks actually carry my favorite drink. So I have to settle for coke.
I smell food... and it smells like America!
