What to expect from GeekFest 2017

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; GeekFest is the most fun the whole family will have in a single day. Mom, dad, and grandma, but unfortunately Spot isn't invited because this year GeekFest is at the prestigious Montecasino. We attended 2015's event - where time stood still, and there was laughter. Then we attended 2016, and much merriment was had by all. I cannot stress it enough; GeekFest is coming to town, and you need to make sure your whole family joins the fun. It's a day where we celebrate everything that makes life wonderful. You don't have to be a geek or a gamer to enjoy the event; it's a fun day for the whole family.

GeekFest 2017 will take place at Montecasino on Saturday, 13 May, and if you feel like having some more fun, then you can attend Sunday as well. One of the biggest attractions at GeekFest is, of course, the Cosplay. Personally, I love the dogs and kids Cosplay the most as they just steal the show with their childlike wonder. Then again, during GeekFest we're all children .... as some in the video below demonstrate.
