Wow, I can’t believe how crazy the weekend of October 10, 11, and 12 is going to be in the greater Pittsburgh area! That weekend is Monster Bash, an amazing classic horror movie convention in Mars, PA which will be celebrating all things Hammer horror this October. They have an amazing lineup of stars, programs, Q&A’s and dealers (including yours truly!). I have been attending this convention for a couple of years and I think it is one of the best horror conventions in the country. Everyone is amazingly friendly, gracious, and very available. No long lines here; you can have a conversation. It is great! This will be my first time as a dealer, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Literally 5 minutes away in Evan’s City PA will be the Living Dead Fest. Evan’s City is the filming location of Night of the Living Dead (and The Crazies) as well as the Living Dead Museum. This year they have an amazing lineup including George Romero and they will be dedicating a plaque on the Cemetery Chapel, which was recently restored. Man that sounds amazing!
Then, in downtown Pittsburgh proper, at the convention center is the Pittsburgh Zombie Fest. This event takes place on Saturday and will have people dressed as zombies, vendors, live music … all kinds of fun stuff. A couple of years back they set the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of Zombies at their zombie walk. Awesome!
I currently live in Mars, and I am so fortunate to have so many freaking cool events going on around me. My only problem is that I can’t go to them all! All things considered though, that is a good problem to have.
Well, that’s it for now. Like I said I’ll be at Monsterbash selling artwork and having a great time. If you see me there, tell ‘em Terror Crypt sent ya!!!
