In April, I attended a surprise birthday car parade for a Girl Scout named Emaline. The parade started at La Madera Park and ended at her house. Among those participating in the parade were other Girl Scouts in her troop and friends. The surprise parade was for Emaline’s 8th birthday. Emaline attends Sam Hughes Elementary.

 As summer is rolling around, so are some of fans’ favorite conventions like Phoenix Fan Fusion, San Diego Comic-Con, Vidcon and MegaMania. Phoenix Fan Fusion is May 23–26 at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Cons and conventions are great experiences for those in fandoms. A fandom is generally a large group of people who post or support fan content made for things like TV shows, movies, books, YouTubers or comics. It’s obviously a great time for fandom dwellers.
