This article was talking about all the fans flocking here from all over the world to attend the Eyecon Convention and get a chance to see the stars and watch them film while on our tour. Thanks again AJC!
“Sandra Lesny received an early birthday present from her husband for 2011. And 2012. And 2013. A trip to the EyeCon convention last week in Atlanta to see her favorite stars of the hit TV show “The Vampire Diaries.”
She was joined by fans from all around the United States. Lesny is from Bremen, Germany, and she was far from the only foreign citizen to make the trip.
“(The convention) was amazing. It was my first crazy trip,” Lesny said Monday. “I was just on Facebook, and I saw EyeCon and thought ‘What is this?’ But my husband had to pay for it, and he said yes, so now I’m here. It was a birthday present for the next three years.”
It was at the convention that Lesny befriended Rhonda Thomas from Oklahoma, who convinced Lesny to come out and tour the filming sites in Covington.
Jessica Lowery, the founder of Mystic Falls Tours in Covington, had an influx of tour takers, including visitors from Australia, England, France, Greece and Portugal, among others.
“It was a crazy weekend. I met lots and lots of fans that love the show so much,” said Lowery, who was of the convention’s co-sponsors.” (excerpt from covnews.com: Read the Full Story at http://www.covnews.com/archives/18645/
