The Flower and Garden Show was awesome! I loved the singing bowls and all the clovers. I am a huge four leaf clover fan. Great theme this year. I always enjoy the venue. Great escalators. Awesome food options. Nice giveaways. Huge and very fun to walk through floor layouts. Great vendors. I am super glad they have bathrooms everywhere. Cell service is good so getting lost or separated is not a big deal. Thank you to all the staff.
I visited here with my family for Emerald City Comic Con the place was well-maintained and security was tight and professional. Everything was labeled well and I was able to find my way around with no problem. There are several parking garages around the convention center that you can easily Park in they do cost City prices but that's to be expected. Food inside the center was fast considering the convention and priced fairly. There was a wheelchair access to all floors as well as escalators and elevators for those that needed help moving around. And thankful for Seattle hosting Emerald City Comic Con here and look forward to attending for years to come!
