It’s that time of year again! Spooky Empire is hosting its annual spring horror convention! We’ve attended several of the Spooky Empire events and we can honestly say that they are truly an amazing and fun time. The event officially starts on Friday, May 30 and goes to Sunday June 1st, but usually people start getting together and partying by the pool on Thursday night. But you can choose to go for a day or all three days, it's up to you!
This year, some of the events include:
Day of the Dead Opening Party, Museum, Poker Tournament, Costume Contest, Live Acts and Performances, Hearse and Creepy Car Show, Zombie Walk, Film Festival, Tattoo Festival, And much more!
They have an excellent dealer’s room, where you can purchase all kinds of cool things. They have an art exhibit. They also have a ton of guests (Media, Authors, Artists, ETC.) that you would “die” to meet!
And of course, I have to mention the “killer” parties they have, by the pool. J

John Carpenter - Halloween (1978), The Fog, Escape From New York, The Thing, Christine, They Live, Big Trouble Little China
