MIDSUMMER SCREAM 2022 REVIEW

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.

For The Love of Halloween: Season’s Screamings 2021 Review

Since 2016, Midsummer Scream has provided amazing content, entertainment, shopping opportunities, and a judgement free area for those who love the color black and don't mind being covered in blood every now and again. These short days are perfect to get all of us back into the spirit (but who has ever truly left) before the doors open to the biggest haunts and best home haunts SoCal has to offer. Typically, that would be the end of the story. But in 2021, it doesn't end there. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, the team behind Midsummer Scream decided to hold off on their popular event and instead focus on a smaller event called Awaken The Spirits, which was phenomenal. They also created a brand new event during the holidays called Season's Screamings.

Variety Show lineup and additional haunts and presentations announced for Season’s Screamings at Pasadena Convention Center December 17th – 19th, 2021

Season’s Screamings will showcase more than 200 sinister vendors and artisans, the dark and foreboding Hall of Yuletide Spirits where haunters from across the Southland have whipped up a ghoulish assortment of mini attractions and displays, live entertainment, and a dedicated stage where panels and presentations will be held throughout the event’s three-day celebration, December 17th - 19th, 2021 at the Pasadena Convention Center.
