Awwwww yeah! ScareLA has been one of my favorite Halloween conventions for the last few years, and this year they have the one and only Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark to be the official host! It’s all going down this weekend (August 6th & 7th) in Pasadena, California at the Pasadena Convention Center.
With Halloween only a few months away, it’s never to soon to get into the spirit (pun intended) and ScareLA has got the goods to help you out. Tons of on-location vendors, artists, and even some special celebrity guests (in addition to Ms. Elvira) will be on hand to make sure you keep a smile on your Halloween-loving face. And speaking again of Elvira, if you would like the once in a lifetime chance to meet the icon, you have to pre-pay for your photo/autograph chance HERE and you can find more info in general at the ScareLA website. No tickets for the Elvira meet-and-greet will be sold onsite. So, get on over to ScareLA if you’re in the Pasadena area this weekend and don’t forget to say trick or treat!
With Halloween less than 3 months away, what better way to start to get into the mood than by going to a convention that caters to everything that is Halloween? And that’s exactly what I did this past weekend at the ScareLA Convention in downtown Pasadena, California.
Now in it’s third year, the ScareLA Convention is easily one of my favorite horror-related conventions to hit up, and this year they had a new bigger and better location at The Pasadena Convention Center. And because of that bigger and better venue, there were bigger and better treats and surprises as well! For instance, an entire section of the convention center was dedicated to local haunted houses, where you could stand in line and get a taste of what they had to offer by walking through mini-versions of them. This was definitely a highlight for me, as the area really captured the Halloween spirit with fog machines, darkness, and the occasional costumed creature popping up.
There is a ton to do at the ScareLA Convention,so you definitely won’t be bored if you decide to go when it comes back next year. In addition to the mini haunted houses, you can check out some movie screenings or sit in on a panel like the Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights one where they announced this year that a brand new Michael Myers maze will be coming! Numerous ghouls and ghosts walk around the convention while you stop by the many booths full of Halloween and horror-themed art, trinkets, and delicious pastries. There is even a kiddie section set up where you can take the little ones so they can join in on the spooky fun as well. Overall, you won’t find more bang for your buck if you’re looking to get into the Halloween sprit and the ScareLA Convention definitely keeps improving every year!
My favorite time of the year is only about 3 months away! No, not Columbus Day. And no, not my wedding anniversary. My apologies to my wife btw…..but I’m talking about Halloween! And what better way to get yourself into the mood than with a convention that revolves around anything and everything that is Halloween called the ScareLA Convention in Southern California, which is taking place this year in Pasadena at the Pasadena Convention Center on August 8th & 9th.
Now, I have to say that I’ve been the past two years to the ScareLA Convention and can unbiasedly say it’s one of the most fun and entertaining conventions of it’s kind that I’ve experienced. It really nails the Halloween feel, with tons of exhibits and booths dedicated to the holiday, as well as some actual haunted attractions that you can walk through as well! You might even see a celebrity or two pop up as well (I was lucky enough to meet Sid Haig last year).
