June is an Excellent Month for Florida Cons

June is an excellent month for cons in Florida because there is a con every weekend, which means there are four conventions to visit this month. Each con has a different genre focus like sci-fi, horror, anime, and pop culture. In order, by date, the cons are are Infinitycon, SWFL SpaceCon, Spooky Empire, and finally Anime Festival Orlando (AFO).
