Geek'd Con is my favorite thing in Shreveport. Apologies to the Mudbugs and Mardi Gras, but for real, Shreveport's biggest geek event is a magical weekend that can't be duplicated.

When I talk to people about it, nearly everyone gets excited, but some quickly follow that excitement up with some form of the phrase "But what is it really?" Which I'm actually not upset about hearing. Anytime I get that question, it just gives me more of a chance to talk about the event.

But sometimes talking isn't enough.

I mean, I can tell people about guests, or the story of how the event started, or how it's designed just for Shreveport and Bossier (and not a copy of a Dallas or New Orleans event), or vendors...I mean, I could really go on and on. But sometimes showing the response and reaction of fans really demonstrates what the event is really about.
