Hundreds of furries – adults dressed in anthropomorphic animal suits – will be descending on Orlando this week. 

Central Florida's Furry community will gather at the Megaplex Anthropomorphic Convention 2018 at SeaWorld Doubletree in Orlando from Aug. 3 to Aug. 5. This year's theme is "The Furnesian Islands," a look into South East Pacific cultures.

At the convention, there will be a variety of activities and performances, including puppetry, improv and live music.

The Megaplex Convention first started in 2002 and each year, it helps raise money to benefit The C.A.R.E. Foundation, which specializes in rescue help for local wildlife and abused pets. Representatives of the foundation will speak at the FurryCon and usually bring in a few animals as well.
