Seewald is a big believer in inclusive activities, especially community celebration.

If you're looking for an off-beat midwinter celebration, Sweets So Geek is partnering with some of its neighbors in Georgetown Square this weekend to present Fort Wayne's first annual A.T. Con.

The two day festival will have attendees sharing in the festival fun at four core locations in this long-established shopping center on the city's east side, including the Georgetown Public Library, Books, Comics & Things and Georgetown Entertainment (formerly Georgetown Bowl).

Holtzberg is excited to offer a bowling class that will teach folks about of history and technique of the sport.

Festivities are geared toward families and will live up to the reputation Sweets So Geek became well known at its original location on North Anthony Boulevard, says Seewald, offering up the promise of a shopping center-wide Scavenger Hunt as proof of that claim.

The one connecting theme in the full assortment of planned activities being presented around the complex throughout the weekend is, quite literally, all things  that make Fort Wayne a special cause for celebration.

Last week WBOI's Julia Meek invited Chad, the originator of the project, and Georgetown Entertainment's Ashley Holtzberg into the studio to discuss what this pop culture celebration represents in terms of a way to "lighten winter's sadness" and how it will bring the comunity together.
