Last summer SoCal Haunt Stalkers were treated to Halloween tricks in the middle summer with the impressive and widely attended ScareLA convention. The convention featured the who’s who of SoCal haunters from the big name local haunts, Reign of Terror and Sinister Pointe, to the big parks like Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights (HHN). The convention ceremoniously featured HHN’s announcement of The Purge scare zone and Insidious maze (one of our favorites of 2013). In addition, there was Hollywood Horror royalty, makeup and effects masters, mini-walk throughs, and vendors of fine creepy items. In comparison to some of the other long running and well known haunt conventions we’ve been to; this one was the biggest and best, its first year out of the grave.
The fun and scares return this summer for the second annual ScareLA taking place back at LA Mart in Downtown Los Angeles on August 9th and 10th, 2014, with an even bigger show full of haunted attractions, Halloween crafts and lore, makeup, costuming, and haunt production classes, interactive experiences (including mini-haunts) and all sorts of ghoulish delights.
If you’d like to be involved in the scare-tivites you can either submit a proposal for the program and tell them if you or somebody you know would be a rock star panelist, scary class teacher, performer, or if you know of a great experience that should be at ScareLA. You can also apply to be a vendor or exhibitor – showcase your work to an anticipated crowd of over 6,000 local Halloween and haunt enthusiasts and professionals.
Tickets will go on sale soon, and checking Scare Zone to be one of the first find out when and hear about more tricks and treats as they’re unveiled!
