Quite a few on the list I like. Had to choose other activities as well.  For me the best thing about a furcon is talking to others about their fersonas. Some furryes have wonderfully complex stories behind their fursona.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

I usually nose around the Dealer's Den or Artists' Alley. I watched the fursuit dance comp at last year's Califur and I really enjoyed it.  (: I also like the fursuit parade.

The Fursuit Parade, Fursuit Dance Competition, Nightly dances and raves, Masquerade, the Panels & Seminars, and the Dealers' Den usually top my list of things I enjoy.

I've been to a con once, and a small one at that: the Dutch FurCon. There were 'only' 90 attendees, so there was no puppetry or comedy or whatever fancy stuff you have at big cons.

That said, I'll mention a few things that were at that con. Some weirdo brought their laptop and game controllers to the con, and one login to steam later a few people were busy with video games. I did join the fun there. I was also at an art workshop and a baking workshop, which were interesting. I also met one of my internet friends IRL. Said friend lives in Poland whilst I live here in the Netherlands. Him coming here was no surprise, but I still think it was a bit ridiculous he made this trip to see me for three days.

What I enjoyed the most by far was the furwalk. Since it was a smaller con, every attendee could join in if they wanted, fursuit or not. I was so amazed by seeing so many fursuits in one place, I just fell silent. Had I not fallen silent, I'd probably be squeeing like a little girl. If I could squee like a little girl.

I'm looking forward to going again this year.

Here's my DeviantArt, there isn't much on there and it's partly non-furry as well though

I normally attend Eurofurence (in Berlin), and there are always good panel discussions for writers. It's great to be in a place where furry writing is taken
seriously.  Apart from that, I enjoy suiting up and attending the annual furwalk.

I take advantage of the amenities in the Sponsor's Lounge and Headless Lounge. Never miss the Fursuit Parade or Photoshoot. I host a panel almost ever year at MCFC. Unfortunately, there's little pawpetry at this con, but I bring a few anyway. I don't believe there's an internet room there. Love the fursuiters and take as many candid photos as possible of them.
