Visit Pittsburgh’s Craig Davis said there’s a bit of a love affair between Anthrocon and Pittsburgh.

“We have really embraced them over the 11 years they have been here.  It’s become a spectator sport.  People like to come down and watch them, and they liked to be watched. So, it’s a really great symbiotic relationship of respect for each other.”
