What to know now that day one of Pensacon 2018 is in the books

Day one of Pensacon 2018 is in the books, and now it's time for the after-party!

Channel 3's Allie Norton spoke with Pensacon Director of Marketing and Guest Relations Kat Bishop at The Fish House.

Bishop said for Saturday and Sunday, you can arrive at the Pensacola Bay Center up to two hours early to pick up your tickets. Doors open at 10 a.m. so Bishop advises trying to get your ticket at 8 a.m.

Bay Center security measures have also recently changed. Make sure any bags you bring are no larger than 12 inches by 12 inches. Also, guns, knives, and weapons that aren't cosplay will not be allowed.

And don't just stay at the Bay Center all weekend! Downtown businesses love Pensacon because of all the people that come through.

Some downtown business even decided to play along with Pensacon and decided on a theme to deck out their businesses in!

The Fish House has a "Harry Potter" theme this year, so you'll not only find decorations, but also drink and food specials to go along with the theme. The Deck Bar will be showcasing "Star Wars," the Atlas Oyster Bar is "Star Trek," and the newly opened Perfect Plain Brewing Company will have "Walking Dead" theme!
