It was a beautiful day in the Lehigh Valley. Several events happening on the same day including the Roasting Ears of Corn Festival, Lehigh Valley Pagan Pride, Levitt Pavilion Summer Concert Series, Autumn Hawk Watch, and more. PA Horror Con and Film Festival started it’s first day strong. Saturday, August 20, 2022, the Delta Hotel in Breiningsville, PA was packed with celebrity guests, vendors, and fans looking to meet their favorite star or pick up a cool collectible.

The 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale owned by Ash Williams in Ash vs Evil Dead was on display in front of the Delta Hotel. Fans were outside taking photos with the car.
It’s always fun at conventions especially when you run into friends, I saw familiar friends, met some new friends. Some of the vendors had some incredible stuff for sale. The cosplayer came out in full-force as Haunt season has also started, technically for some of us, Halloween is year-round, and for some people it starts on July 5th. For some people it’s a way of life. Pennsylvania has a lot of great haunted attractions including: The Waldorf Estate of Fear, Reaper’s Revenge Haunted Hayride, Eastern State Penitentiary etc.
Some of the vendors included: Buffalo Bill’s House: The Silence of the Lambs Filming Location. Toruga.Productions, Ruined Creations, by Lauren Ruins, David Willingham/Artist, Drew Pizzo and David Ulinitz from Kreepsville, From Ashes to Empire, Joshua Sigler, The Art of Creation by Brian Dunn.
Keep an eye out for the film Back Road by Drew Pizzo.
