Thousands of people are gathered for many different games where news is shared and a lot of activities are organized.
Everything depends on what you like to play and watch. Besides watching the NFL picks, you can go to one of many events that are happening this year. A great thing is that the pandemic is slowly going away and many activities that were forbidden are now available like organizing huge crowds.

On the third and fourth days, people that love gaming can join the event. A great thing is that you will be able to try out new games that are still in development. The event will happen in September, but try to plan everything ahead because it will be crowded and it can be difficult to find a place to stay.
Penny Arcade Expo (PAX)
