Pa Horror Con returned to the Lehigh Valley with lots of great vendors, and some legendary Horror icons. The weather held up and there was some magic in the air, maybe it was the positivity radiating throughout the Lehigh Valley from Gallows Hill Spirits Co., it was Gallows 4-year anniversary today.
Pa Horror Con had a packed house as guests mingled, shopped, met Horror icons, dressed in cosplay, and overall had fun. It’s always like a family reunion at a Horror convention. (Covid-19 protocol information was displayed.)
Some of us get to see one another daily because we live close, and some of us see each other at conventions and random events. No matter what we all always wind up having a conversation. There were some new vendors and the familiar vendors including Deadly Grounds Coffee, which is “Coffee to Die For.” They give out samples and Tom Lialios and his wife are always wonderful to talk to. Tom explained some important coffee knowledge with me today.
A dear friend of mine and a talented photographer Carol attended the show and she got to chat with quite a few people.
The celebrity guests included: Tom Fridley, Darcy DeMoss, C.J. Graham, Tom McLoughlin, Thom Mathews, Jennifer Banko, R.A. Mihailoff, Toni Hudson, Tony Moran, Linden Porco, Andrew Bryniarski, Oliver Robins, Robert Mukes, the ICONIC Mr. Michael Berryman who is ALWAYS kind and he talks with you. He is just wonderful. Christine Elise who is just so talented and she has an amazing YouTube channel where she shares recipes and more.
Kim Myers, the FOREVER ICONIC, Felissa Rose and Dave Sheridan. Dave Ellefson and Naomi Grossman.
The vendors are always great. If you are looking for anything from t-shirts, figurines, keychains, oddities, you will find it at a horror convention.
Some of the vendors included: Trauma Queen FX, Deadly Grounds Coffee, Buffalo Bills House, Geek Emporium (Nelson Mas – GeekEmporium.NYC on Instagram), Strangled Heart, From Ashes To Empires owned by Lee Platt. Haunt Actor/Cosplayer Josh Curzi and his daughter who cosplays as Mini Jason. Horror Gods, White Horses Inc.
Pa Horror Con was a blast. It’s always wonderful seeing friends who become family. I spoke to so many people who said they were happy to see friends and be out and about. The hotel staff and Pa Horror Con staff is always helpful and kind.
