While it's too bad, because I just got shipped my first fursuit, I can understand why. FWA is my only local con ^^" but I'm sure it gets busier each year and harder to keep people happy and safe. I guess it's better to lose a parade than a whole Convention, right?
That's too bad these are fading out...when I've gone to a con, they're among my favorite events. And I'd love to go to MFF or BLFC, those are the top two cons on my list on ones that sound the most exciting...huh...I'll have to ask a fur I know who works helping set up BLFC about the parade issue, now I'm curious! BLFC is in a hotel with a casino, so maybe the casino rules/security impact the logistics.
