First Annual ScareLA Convention!

This previous Sunday Los Angeles Hauntings had the pleasure of attending the first ever ScareLA convention. ScareLA is a event where people in the Halloween industry can meet up and swap ideas and share any tips or tricks. We had a great time at the event and met all types of people, mostly artists and haunted house builders, but also a paranormal group and a great historic society!

The Los Angeles Hauntings at ScareLA began met Krampus… and we were well behaved enough not to get thrown in a river!! (Though maybe we were lucky that LA doesn’t have much water…)

Connor got distracted by the early halloween candy, almost lost her hand to this “Handy” Guillotine made by Mesmeric Creative

Dapper Cadaver made fake corpses that were a little too close to the Black Dahlia crime scene for our comfort. The case still fresh in our mind after a recent video of Elizabeth Short’s Los Angeles.

But, we had a great time finally getting to meet with Richard from GOULA who’s “Spirits with Spirits” events on the 13th of each month we always seem to miss because of tours! Richard was great and we are really looking forward to working with GOULA on future events!

We are also looking forward to heading down to San Fernando this weekend to visit the Pioneer Memorial Cemetery along with developing a relationship with the Historical Society there to help them raise money to preserve the beautiful and haunted lost graveyard. We had the pleasure of chatting with some of the members of the historic society who told of of the plight of the cemetery where only 214 of the estimated 700 graves have been located with the use of ground penetrating radar.

Here’s some other pictures from ScareLA
