Twilight convention to draw 1,000 fans

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — More than 1,000 fans are expected to attend the Twilight Saga Convention in Orlando.

The three-day event celebrates the vampire series created by Stephenie Meyer. It’ll feature a vampire ball, a costume contest, vendors selling Twilight merchandise and several autograph sessions and photo opportunities with stars of the films.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Nikki Reed, who plays vampire Rosalie Hale, will be at the convention Saturday.

Taylor Flores has been to four conventions so far. The 15-year-old from Intercession City attended the Orlando convention with her grandmother. The two were looking for items Taylor can decorate her room with, such as pictures and memorabilia.

Other Twilight conventions are held across the country throughout the year.
