For the second year in a row, the National At-Home Dad Network will host its annual at-home dad convention in Raleigh.

The 21st Annual At-Home Dads Convention will be at Marbles Kids Museum from Oct. 7 to Oct. 9. Last year's conference broke attendance records - and, this year, organizers, including the Triangle Stay-at-Home Dads Group, expect the event to draw even more dads to the Triangle for the convention, according to a press release.

The goal is connect at-home dads and offer a place for them to enhance their parenting skills.

Highlights this year include local keynote speakers, Dr. John Panepinto and Dr. Andrew Behnke; Brian Gordon, cartoonist of Fowl Language Comics; a private screening of the documentary, "The Big Flip," an LGBT parenting panel discussion of difficulties and strategies; and a Dad Expo where vendors, sponsors and speakers will reach dads on a more personal level.

Registration, which is $165 for the multi-day event, is available now.
