Zenkaikon 2022: A Con Season Kickoff With a Side of Donuts!

After a three year hiatus due to COVID, Zenkaikon held its 2022 event in the Lancaster County Convention Center. Many attendees came as early as Thursday, excited to start the event.

Lancaster is located in South Pennsylvania. It is a quaint area with plenty of food options to choose from and even a few nerdy stores to browse during down time. The farmer’s market is one of my personal favorite places to stop by–and is right across the street from the convention center.  I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the popular maple bacon donuts which are a favorite among attendees.But before I ramble on about food, let’s get right into the review!
