IN PICTURES: Democrats gather to support their candidates (and party a little)

Roughly 3,000 Democratic delegates, along with 2,000 other visitors, are in town this week for the party’s fall endorsing convention.

The gathering ahead of the March primary brought out supporters of all stripes—and costumes, dance moves and signs—to support candidates for president.

The convention concludes Sunday following a presidential forum Saturday evening in the Long Beach Arena.
