‘For the fans, by the fans:’ Thousands flock to SopranosCon over the weekend

Posted: Updated:

 

Thousands of people, from as far away as California and even Australia, visited the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus this weekend for SopranosCon.

The convention, which had a catchphrase of "for the fans, by the fans," was created by a group of fans who watched the well-known HBO series which premiered 20 years ago.

Beloved actors such as Dominic Chianese, Tony Sirico and Vincent Pastore attended the convention, along with 50 other cast members.

Fans had the opportunity to get autographs and take photos with their favorite "Sopranos" icons, including Tony's beloved horse Pie-O-My.

The convention also had photo opportunities throughout the floor, including reproductions of Dr. Melfi's office and the Bada Bing bar, as well as a Pine Barrens-themed maze.
