A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending Western PA Furry Weekend, which was an outdoor event held the weekend of October 7th-9th in North Park Lodge in Pittsburgh, PA. It was my first WPAFW since last attending in 2010.
Even though Pittsburgh is 300 miles from Philadelphia, getting there was easy--I took that Friday off, rented a car, and then just drove west along the PA Turnpike for about 5 hours. I did it in the middle of the day so as to avoid traffic. Then, once I got to the hotel and got checked in, the lodge was just a 15 minute drive away.
The weather was great and I had a good time. Got to spend most of Friday night and Saturday catching up with folks that I knew. The attendance this year was a record-breaking 270, and the charity was Going Home Greyhounds, which we raised $5,666 for (also record-breaking!).
I also discovered--completely by accident--that putting a scoop of chocolate ice cream on top of pumpkin pie is AMAZING. Seriously, you should try it sometime.
I have many more pictures! The full albums can be found on:
Next year's event will be held form October 20-22, 2017 in the same location. I hope to make it there!
