To walk down the streets of Baltimore during a specific weekend in the summer, you will find people in costumes of all sorts milling around the central hub of the Baltimore Convention Center.

If you know whom you're looking for, you may even find some locals among the crowd.

"(My favorite part) is all the people in costumes," Crystal Wimer, 25, of Keyser, W.Va, said, "with huge papier-mache swords and bright colors. It's like Halloween gone mad."
