Pittsburgh, Pa.-Those who love to dress up in animal costumes are making their annual pilgrimage to Pittsburgh.
They call themselves Furries, which means they dress up as large furry animals for fun.
About 6,000 people are in town to see and be seen at Anthrocon for the convention.
"We love it. It's so much fun. I wish they could come more often every year,” said convention attendee Baris Budak.
And it's a big tourist draw for Pittsburgh also with participants coming from 25 countries.
"It’s what they're into. It makes them happy. It relaxes them. It gets them through the day," said Anthrocon Board Chairman Dr. Samuel Conway.
The convention has brought 41 million dollars to the Pittsburgh economy over the years with an estimated 7 million dollars this year alone.
