Midsummer Scream, the West coast convention that’s a celebration of Halloween horror haunts returns July 29-30 to the Long Beach Convention Center. Along with Vendors, and a gathering of the friendliest, ghosts and ghouls in Southern California, Midsummer Scream boasts its Hall of Shadows, a large portion of the convention’s show floor that’s shrouded in darkness and filled with billowing fog, roaming monsters, and 14 highly-themed “mini haunts.” The Hall of Shadows represents professional and home-made attractions that fans can look forward to visiting this Halloween season.

“Hall of Shadows is a substantial component of Midsummer Scream,” says the convention’s Creative Director, Rick West. “We are thrilled with the diversity of participating groups this year, from extremely popular pro haunts, to some of the greatest home haunts in existence.”

Taking up approximately 1/3 of Midsummer Scream’s 92,000 square-foot show floor, installation of the Hall takes careful planning and coordination well before the doors open to the public, including the Sleepy Hollow inspired portal designed and built by CalHauntS (California Haunting Society). Guests will pass underneath a gothic archway into an eerie cemetery, complete with weathered tombstones and macabre scenic elements.

“[T]here is nothing that defines Halloween in America more than haunted houses and lurking monsters. It’s going to be a blast, and all of our participants are raring to go,” said West. “Add the awesome spectacle of the Decayed Brigade slider team into the mix, and you’ll find that we have a Hall of Shadows experience this year that is truly epic.”

The Hall of Shadows will be open Saturday and Sunday, July 29 and 30, during show hours. It is not intended for small children; it is recommended that only guests age 13 years and older venture into the Hall itself. Each haunt will be closed periodically throughout the day for necessary crew breaks.
