Come to ‘Twilight’ convention with The Issaquah Press this weekend
January 12, 2010
Join us — and fellow Twihards — when the ‘Twilight’ convention comes to Seattle.
Vampires, werewolves and “Twilight” fans — otherwise known as Twihards — will descend on Seattle in the next few days. Although Issaquah is no Forks — the Olympic Peninsula city where the epic series is set — The Issaquah Press will have a front-row seat for the supernatural gathering.
Come along: Follow The Issaquah Press on Twitter @twilight_press to the Official Twilight Fan Convention in Seattle, Jan. 15-17. Expect exclusive photos and updates from convention activities. Find the convention-only Twitter feed here.
If you feel like meeting a creature up close, events will be held at The Westin Seattle, 1900 Fifth St. The convention, presented by Summit Entertainment and Creation Entertainment, will offer attendees a chance to immerse themselves in the “Twilight” saga.
The gathering will feature onstage appearances by “Twilight” celebrities, exclusive footage screenings, panel discussions, vampire-themed parties, musical performances, costume and trivia competitions, auctions, autographing, merchandising and photo opportunities, “Twilight” merchandise — and more.
