The residents of Port Charles came together this past weekend with their adoring and passionate fans from all over the world to celebrate the 50th anniversary of General Hospital, with a stellar line-up  of separate cast member events, the Kickoff reception on Thursday, the Main Cast Luncheon on Saturday, and the blast from the past, Past Cast Stars reunion event on Sunday.

Many of your favorites showed up for the main event on Saturday including: Jason Thompson, Blake Gibbons, Bradford Anderson, Brandon Barash, Kirsten Storms, Teresa Castillo, Kelly Thiebaud, Parry Shen, Bryan Craig, Chad Duell, Kristen Alderson, Drew Cheetwood, Emma Samms, Kathleen Gati, Jimmy Deshler, Haley Pullos, John J. York, Lynn Herring, Michael Easton, Rebecca Herbst, Robin Mattson, Samantha Logan, Kin Shriner, Lisa LoCicero, Tequan Richmond, Laura Wright and more!

After the arrivals of the cast, General Hospital fans were delighted to see the  contingent from the ABC soap as they were announced one by one to their screaming fans, and then took part in a fun Q&A hosted once again this year by John. J. York with an assist by Bradford Anderson. Anderson roamed around the room to get fans to chime in on their thoughts and ask questions of their favorite stars.

A late, yet great, arrival to the proceedings was General Hospital executive producer, Frank Valentini who joined the cast on stage and made a very special ‘thank you’ on behalf of everyone for the audiences continued support of GH, and to relay that there is some exciting moments ahead in the months to come on upcoming episodes.   Following the ending of the Q&A, the stars manned their stations as they took time to sign autographs to an excited line-up of fans.  Upon inspection, we actually think Michael Easton (Silas Clay, pictured here) wins the award for longest line!

Now after the jump, view just some of the images from the GH Main Event arrivals.  Remember to view the gallery you can either view as a slideshow, or to go to the next group of images hit the NEXT GROUP icon to the left of the + sign! Let us know what you favorite part of GHFCW 2013 was if you attended? And if you were not able to attend,  who would you most want to meet in person  up close and personal?

    I’d never been to a fan event before and was blown away by my first GHFCW. I met so many of the actors, Frank Valentini, and some amazing fellow fans. When lines were short, I got to have actual conversations with some of them, Parry Shen you rock!! The actors could not have been nicer, even at the events that went into the wee hours (Jason Thompson and Dominic Zamprogna stayed until almost 2am to make sure the last of us in line at their individual event got to meet them and still were smiling and thanked us for coming; even apologizing for the wait). We’d have waited longer guys, you were worth it! As soon as I pay off this trip, I’m going to start saving for next years GHFCW!

    That’s interesting…I was continually reading on twitter that John Reilly (aka Sean Donely) had the longest line!

    I think I read that John Reilly may have had the longest line at the past cast fan event.

    That you for posting the pictures and confirming the longest line issue. It really doesn’t matter to me because I would still like Michael Easton if he had the shortest line but some hateful fans are always tweeting the same nonsense that no one wants Michael Easton on the show simply because they don’t like him. Glad to know that alot of the fans were happy he was there. Granted they don’t represent all of GH fans but they do represent a sampling. If a large percentage of all of the GH fans at the fan club weekend are his fans then more than likely a large percentage of all GH fans enjoy him on the show as well. I know I do!

    I am in love with Michael Easton and have been for years. I know what you mean about what the horrible things people are saying. I also love GH no matter what. Frank and Ron are it for me and no I am not related. I have enjoyed watching their talent for many years. Really horrible some of the things that people are saying. I am enjoying the heck out of myself just watching.

    Miss seeing one of the best actresses Kimberly McCullough. Patrick needs Robin and JT and Kimberly are amazing together . You cannot manufacture their chemistry. FCW not the same anymore and I want the real GH back not FV cheap version. Everything is so cheap and horrible writers from all soaps that went off the air is not a good thing.
