From their website:
"Midoricon 2013 will be taking place on the weekend of September 6-8th, at Shawnee State Park Lodge in West Portsmouth, Ohio. Returning to our signature woodland setting at a cozy lakeside lodge, you can be sure this is one anime convention which makes quite a distinction from your run-of-the-mill con! We have all the indoor programming and conveniences you expect from any convention, like panels, an artist's alley, vendors, a masquerade, and more. You will also experience an educational and interactive environment resembling a Japanese festival, as we transform our cabin community into a feudal Japanese village, and host informative outdoor panels, games, workshops and martial arts demonstrations in our various outdoor panels - the dojos.
Be sure to pack that sunscreen and plot some creative bathing suit cosplays for our private beach party and pool rave! Bring some 'mallows for community s'mores and hot dog roasting at our bonfire! With our Slenderman hike, Pokemon geocaching, Mario Kart racing, an outdoor movie night, and so much more, this is one convention you just can't pass up!"
You all heard correctly! An Indoor/OUTDOOR con! This will be my first year attending, and I'm hoping to see a lot of friendly faces!
