Halloween in Southern California: there’s nothing quite like it: Grabbing a Pumpkin spice latte on a crisp 95-degree morning and wearing your best scarf… for a grand total of 30 minutes before you realize you may be suffering from heat stroke.

Once upon a time in a land not so far away, there was a gathering of many many people who all had one thing in common. They were all united by their love and enthusiasm for all things spooky! Every year (barring those marred by plague) hoards of faithful followers make a pilgrimage to the realm of the Long Beach Convention Center. Here they delight in getting scared in the many houses infested with ghouls and goblins and make sure to visit all the talented tradesmen (and women) who travel from far and wide to sell their wares. What a wonderful fairy tale! Oh, wait…this is no tall tale! This may seem too good to be real… but we are, in fact, speaking of Southern California’s premiere Halloween and Horror Convention: Midsummer Scream! The Worlds LARGEST Halloween and Horror Convention.
The most immersive Halloween experience in Southern California, Knott's Scary Farm, returns with unimaginable new scares and terrifying twists for its 49th frightful year.
