Mothman Festival--Join HPIR in Pt. Pleasant for a weekend full of fun, featuring WV's most famous creature! We'll have a table set up on Main Street, so amidst the festivities, be sure to drop by and say hi. There's a great list of speakers and vendors at this year's program, so be sure to check out the website for a full itinerary.
Memorial Team Toni Poker Run--You don't need a motorcycle or Jeep to join us at this event and have a good time! This year's run, filled with food, prizes, raffles, etc. is actually going to benefit one of HPIR's own, a wonderful woman in the paranormal field and her family, making this event even more special. Kickoff in Chesapeake!
Scare Fest--The awesome festival held in Lexington each year will continue in 2012, but unfortunately I won't be there, lol. However, if YOU are in the area, this is an event not to miss. Full of speakers, vendors, and tons and tons of celebrities. Several years ago, Aaron was lucky enough to be in the restroom with TWO big names...one in the horror film industry, and the other in the paranormal field. So lots of opportunities to get up close and personal with your favorite personalities, lol.
ShockaCon--WV's first horror and sci-fi convention will have a myriad of activities in downtown South Charleston. Seriously, there is something here for everyone! After being asked by several independent parties about setting up an info table, we mulled it over and decided that with our investigation and personal schedules during this busy time, we are simply going to come as patrons. But...look for us! We'll still be available to hand out literature or discuss your paranormal concerns. In addition to all the awesome guests and speakers at this event, we're looking forward to seeing our colleagues at The Original WV Paranormal, and also hanging out with our buddies from the Cemetery Knights Hearse Club!
A Night To Remember...with the Ohio River Believers Society--Local group ORBS will be hosting this cancer benefit with lots of great activities. Proceeds go to benefit the American Cancer Society.
Halloween Tours! Haunted and Historic Guyandotte Tours will be bringing you FREE ghost tours of downtown Guyandotte. Our Ghostly Encounters Tour is one of our most popular tours of the season, PACKED with history, stories, and plenty of opportunities for you to experience the paranormal first hand. Join us as we guide you through the history and the haunts of Huntington's oldest neighborhood. Please see our website for more information.
Guyandotte's Civil War Haunted History Tours! This is our other most popular tour of the season, and is held in conjunction with Guyandotte Civil War Days, an event commemorating the raid and burning of this former Union Recruitment Camp site. These tours are also FREE and will cover the many pre-Civil War era homes in the area, most of which are said to be especially haunted during this time of the year. Please see our website for more information!
There's a ton of other great stuff going on throughout the tri-state during September and October, so if you have an event you'd like to add here, please drop me a line! Also, be sure to follow Theresa's Haunted History on FaceBook for updates on these and other great events!
