The final day of the conVENTion began with breakfast and a roast of Vent of the Year Ronn Lucas, followed by what was then a staple of the conVENTion, the awards ceremony. After a matinee kids' show featuring Bob Jepson, Mark Wade, David Ginn, and Bob and Cathy Gibbons, conVENTioneers took their annual pilgrimage to Vent Haven Museum, followed by the final event of the conVENTion, the All Star Show, emceed by Mark Wade and featuring Gary Owen, Bob Jepson, Kohl and Co., and Ronn Lucas.

All of this was captured on film by conVENTioneer and official photographer Arty Freda, who donated a photo album of highlights to Vent Haven Museum. Some of the best pictures from that photo album are included here below.
