Furry Weekend Atlanta guests of honor

Furry Weekend Atlanta 2013 was the tenth iteration of Furry Weekend Atlanta, and occured over March 14-17, 2013. The theme was "Still in Love",[1] and the Guests of Honor were Jimmy Chin and Hibbary.[2]

This year, the convention moved further downtown, to the Westin hotel; due to the sheer number of floors (69, not including the spinning SunDial restaurant on the 70th), the convention was dubbed "ElevatorCon" by some attendees[3]. Official attendance was 2,396[4], and over $18,400[5] was raised for the convention's charity, Conservators' Center Inc.

The 2013 fursuit parade featured a three-person honor guard of EMTs, led by a fursuiter holding a U.S. flag, holding a picture of the late Timothy McCormick (Lemonade Coyote), who was one of two EMT victims of a crash with another driver in February 2013.
