Florida has five comic conventions in August, reports Florida Comic Cons, a news media website that covers comic conventions and cosplayers in The Sunshine State. Orlando has two: Megacon Orlando and Fanboy Expo Orlando, which are back-to-back. Nearby Kissimmee has Omni Fan Expo. And south Florida cons include one the east coast, Ultracon of South Florida in West Palm Beach, and one on the west coast, SW-FloridaCon in Fort Myers. This means avid fans and cosplayers in much of the state are within a few hours drive to multiple conventions this month.
