Over 225 unique vendors to take a piece of Halloween home with you. A party on a Haunted SHIP??? What we would do if we were going to Midsummer Scream? Go through the Hall of Shadows (14 mini-haunts) until they kick us out. Stalk Elvira until she tattoos her name into our skin. Sit, listen, and take numerous notes on every expert panel hosted…even if we have to be in two places at once. Try to contact any real ghost on the Queen Mary. Live-stream the Decayed Brigade Slider Performance! A little about David Markland. Check out his other Horror website Creepy LA: Creepy Happenings and Events around Los Angeles. He’s really excited about the Ben Cooper Costumes: Past and Future presentation at Midsummer Scream…since David used to wear the original Star Wars costumes when he was little. He enjoys handing out candy on Halloween night…even if he has to go to someone else’s house to do it. We hope you can make it out to Southern California to attend Midsummer Scream one day. And hopefully we can meet you out there! Take advantage of the other great events coming to California within the month of August…listen to the podcast to find out where they are.
