Well, it’s official: Celebration V will be in Orlando, Florida on August 12-15, 2010. Registration is set to go live Thursday, December 10th. Four-day passes start at $120, and we’re sure to get more details soon.
It’s hard for me to get excited about this (Florida in August, ugh) but will the location/timing keep you away? I think I’ll still probably go, but I’ve already seen several folks declare that they won’t.
ETA: Quote of the day, from our own @rosiewook:
The 4 Stages of Celebration Announcements: whining, denial, envy, purchase.
Back to news: Wizard has moved Chicago Comic Con back a week to avoid a conflict: Consider that a consolation prize for the midwest fans. (Cross your fingers for an Indianapolis CVI: Their expansion will be done by that point.) As for other major cons, GenCon (August 5-8) will certainly see a few less Jaders, but I doubt the usually stuffed-to-the-gills Dragon*Con (September 3-6) will suffer many ill effects. (Anything to help the elevator wait times.)
