In its 12 years on TV, Supernatural has spawned countless specials, t-shirts and games, and has amassed a massive fan base. If you’re one of the millions who can’t imagine a dream that doesn’t have Jensen Ackles or Jared Padalecki in it, head to the Rio Hotel this February for Creation Entertainment’s annual Supernatural convention. Sam and Dean Winchester are almost guaranteed to make an appearance, as past years have seen Misha Collins (Castiel), Richard Speight Jr. (Trickster), Jim Beaver (Bobby) and Mark Sheppard (Crowley), among others, show up. Convention events include the usual mainstage panels, but this year brings some not-so-common occurrences like a five-hour “Ghost Hunt” with Chad Lindberg (Ash) and a costume parade with great prizes.
Location: 3700 W Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas.
