Midsummer Scream 2017 was an absolute blast filled with spooky monsters and good times. We talked about this in length on The Theme Park Duo Podcast, but the overwhelming feeling of family permeated the entire event. Coming to a Halloween convention like Midsummer Scream is nothing like attending Comic Con or D23. Although those are both rewarding in their own right, this feels more like a gathering of close friends. One community of people who love the spooky and scary! If you want our full overview of our experience at Midsummer Scream, make sure to head over to iTunes and check out our most recent episode (Episode 112). What follows are some of our favorite photos taken over the weekend.
