I had the pleasure of attending Paranormal Fest 2011. I met some new people, new paranormal groups, and saw some old friends too. Since I have been investigating the paranormal, I find that attending paranormal conventions are needed. It gives you the opportunity to interact with other groups and learn new things. I met some really great people here.
Guests that attended were Shaun Burris from Extreme Paranormal and host of the ever popular Ghostman and Demon Hunter show, Wanda Lou Willis the author of “Hoosier Haunted Trails”, Dan T. Hall who produced and directed “Central State, Asylum of the Insane”, and Sammy Terry was in attendance hosting a Vincent Price horror double feature. Keith Age, the rock-n-roll ghost hunter, and Kat Klockow author of “Haunted Hoosier Halls”.
I had the pleasure of speaking with many paranormal teams as well. Some of the groups were Hoosier Ghost Investigators, Indy NightStalker Paranormal Research, Hoosier Paranormal Research, Indiana Ghost Doctors, Ghost Hunter’s Investigation Group, In Nomine Paranormal Research, FWIGT (Fort Wayne Indiana Ghost Trackers), Indiana Paranormal Soul Searchers, MRIPA, Haunted Heartland Paranormal Investigations, and T.R.A.M.P.S. Paranormal Investigations.
Some other guests included Van Renier, owner of Whispers Estate, Horror Hosts Nyte Angel and Riggor Mortiss, Asylum House, haunted house, and Lydia Burris. I apologize now if I forgot anyone. I do believe I stopped at all the vendor tables.
If you are part of a paranormal group or you just love the paranormal, be on the look out for the next convention! You really can find out some good information. Some of the groups had equipment set out, this is a good opportunity to see what you doo or do not have. This also gives you the chance to maybe come up with ideas on how to improve what you have. You can find out what things other groups are doing and if there are any events coming up hosted by other groups. You will have the opportunity to talk with groups in your area, so if you are interested in joining a group or just want to tag along on an investigation, you can get all the info you need.
