Wow! What a convention!
Let's talk about it!
At first glance, Star Wars Celebration 2 seems to have collected unofficial reports of being almost TWICE the size of Celebration 1 !!!
And in terms of long lines (though a lot drier ) , Celebration 2 attendees' patience spans paid twice the price!
In Denver, they planned for warm weather and an outdoor convention for 25,000 guests. But over 40,000 of them showed up and it rained on them while they stood in mud and froze like a TaunTaun all weekend.
In Indianapolis, they planned for 45,000 and probably over 70,000 showed up! Wow! That's great in terms of fandom, but scary in terms of whether any of the guests could make the most of their shows.
I think I did, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself at Indianapolis!
I am fully on board for a Celebration 3, but making the most of the Indy convention took some effort and planning on my part. Things weren't THAT convenient for attendees at the show.
But it was well worth the trip and Indianapolis was a wonderful city to have this kind of convention in.
