Midsummer Scream is just a few days away and I can't wait for the second year of this Halloween convention (read my coverage of last year's event)! This Halloween convention features thrills and chills via mini haunted attractions, spine-tingling performances, special FX makeup demos, classes and workshops where you can build your own Halloween props, special celebrity guests, spooky vendors galore, a Saturday night costume party on the Queen Mary, and tons of presentations about the season's upcoming haunt attractions from premiere amusement parks like Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights, Queen Mary's Dark Harbor, Knott's Scary Farm, and many more!
I've been looking through their schedule of events, and there are just so many exhibitors, panels, performances, haunts, screenings, celebrities, classes, and even adoptable pets to see over the course of two days on Saturday, July 29th and Sunday, July 30th. I don't know how I'm going to do it all, but I started jotting down all the presentations and performances I can't wait to check out. I thought I'd share my most anticipated Midsummer Scream presentations with you below:
