The 2014 Midwest Haunters Convention is shaping up to be the biggest and best it’s ever been! Everybody involved has been working diligently around the clock over the last few weeks to solidify and finalize a killer line up of events, seminars and vendors, and while we’re still adding even more, you won’t believe what we already have lined up!
