The first annual Midsummer Scream Halloween Festival has concluded and it was a wallop of a hauntingly good fun. We braved mini-haunt experiences from the likes of Perdition Home, Spooky Hollows, DeadZone 805, and several others. We took in various panels from haunted attraction professionals such as John Murdy from Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights. We walked the floor of the Long Beach Convention Center, sorting through a variety of vendors selling hauntingly fun items. And even though it took a good two days of our time to see everything, it feels like it was over in a flash. Midsummer Scream was a terrific time and I look forward to attending the event’s second annual showing next year!
