View Full Version : Important MHC Overview Schedule!

Hello Haunters!

An overview schedule is presented below for the Midwest Haunters Convention this weekend. There is so much going on if you’re attending - and we don’t want for you to miss anything! Also listed are brief schedules for Vendor Demos, Friday Workshops and Weekend Seminars. I hope you find this information in advance helpful.

My best advice is to plan to arrive at all events early: especially the IAHA Masquerade Party! The Wolfe FX Face & Body Art Fashion Show starts at 9 pm, followed at 9:30 with the infamous Ms Midwest Scary Pageant! You also won’t want to miss the Bloody Mary Monster Makeup Wars at 4:30 on Saturday. The Friday Midsummer Nights Scream Party starting at 7 pm is also something you don’t want to miss any part of with celebrity guests!

Next to all that, I’d suggest wearing comfortable shoes, bringing lots of business cards, and leave plenty of room in your luggage to take home cash and carry items from the trade show (which may easily be arranged if you bring enough Red Bull and snack bars to consume over the weekend! LOL.).

We welcome everyone attending the most incredible show ever produced for the haunted attraction industry in Columbus this weekend! Yahoo! The bus tours left today ~ see you all soon!! If you have any questions, please visit our website: www.MidwestHauntersConvention.com or contact Kelly at 614-203-4626 or me at 614-216-0006.

The MHC is sponsored by CostumeFind.com. It is also made possible by the generous support of many sponsors, numerous business enterprises and hundreds of individuals.

Thank you! The MHC ROCKS!!!
