Ain't No Party Like A Scranton Party


This weekend in Scranton is the first Office Convention and will include such events as Office Olympics a character lookalike contest, appearances by cast and crew and performances by the Scrantones, the band that recorded the show's theme music. So far, fourteen cast members have signed up to appear at the event which is being hosted by Al Roker. Although none of bigger stars of the show have signed on, all of the writers will be there which means you will get Mindy Kaling (Kelly) and BJ Novak (Ryan) as well as the actors who portray Kevin and Creed and so much more.

About 2,000 tickets have been sold which range from $25 to $250 and about 70% of the tickets have been bought by out of town fans so this is going to be a huge boon to Scranton's economy as hotels are sold out at a time when they would normally be almost empty.

During the four year run of the show, fans have been making pilgrimages to Scranton, a small city about 100 miles north of Philadelphia, to check out real-life landmarks referenced on the show, from Poor Richard's pub and Farley's restaurant to Lake Wallenpaupack and the Lackawanna County Coal Mine Tour.
