Britton Peele Recommends
If old-school gaming is your thing (and why wouldn't it be?), Retropalooza is where you want to go. It's a family friendly celebration of retro games and vintage toys.
Retropalooza offers a weekend of retro video games, vintage toys, cosplay, and just about any form of nostalgic pop culture that takes you back to your childhood. Browse vendor tables, play free arcade and console games, enter a cosplay contest. Top YouTube personalities scheduled to appear include Matthew Patrick, known to fans as MatPat of "Game Theory"; Andre Meadows, creator of “Black Nerd” YouTube channel.
Admission is $25 on Saturday, $20 on Sunday. A weekend pass is $25 online / $30 at the door. Discounts for advance purchase. Free for kids 12 years of age and younger with paid adult.
