INDIANAPOLIS - Downtown Indianapolis was again a hotbed of activity this weekend as Gen Con crowds mixed with Colts and Fever fans Saturday.
The 47th Gen Con brought tens of thousands of people to Indianapolis, and, even though it's been held here since 2003, provided moments of surprise wonderment for unsuspecting folk downtown.
"It caught us off guard," one person told us. "It just makes walking around downtown very interesting."
Last year, Gen Con set an attendance record after drawing more than 49,000 people to the Circle City.
This year, organizers say even more people pre-registered.
The huge influx of convention-goers, added on top of football fans raring to see the Colts face off against the Giants, made for a great atmosphere downtown, according to Ron Anderson.
"From what the city was 15 years ago to what it is now, I can't describe it," Anderson said. "It's great.
On the other end of Georgia Street, WNBA fans gathered to watch the Indiana Fever take down the Chicago Sky, clinching the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Sunday is the last day for Gen Con. It's also family fun day, meaning families can received discounted group admission rates.
